Monogram ‘R’ – with colour

©Angela Porter 2018

Yesterday’s black and white, graphic monograms of the letter R now coloured, with added lines and metallic highlights.

For all of the letters I used a combination of Copic markers and Chameleon Color Tones colored pencils to add the colours.

I chose Copics over Chameleon Markers as I really wanted soft, gentle, almost pastel colours for these letters. The only way to get these with the Chameleon markers is through gradients with the colourless blending chambers. I wasn’t at all confident I could get the soft, gentle colours with slight blending. So, I went with something I knew that would work for me – Copic Markers with Chameleon Color Blends pencils .

I think I got way too fancy with the added lines on the lower letter R, but it’s all a learning process.

I am really pleased with the others. The colours I chose or, rather, the pastel nature of the the colours, isn’t characteristic of me, but I think they work really well here.

Of course I had to add some metallic highlights. For the smaller Rs I used Uniball Signo metallic gold and silver gel pens.

On to my next letter…
