Colouring with Promarkers #5 Jeans/Trousers
I have chosen 3 blue shades: Blue Pearl, Cornflower and China Blue, and I stamped my image - Daisy from Sugar Nellie, using Memento ink on concord card
Firstly I colour in a section with the palest colour - don't worry about getting even coverage at this stage
I have assumed the light source is coming from the top right of the picture, so I have used the next deeper shade - cornflower - to colour part of the way across the area I have already coloured blue pearl
I then blended by using the palest colour - blue pearl - in a circular motion, moving the colour from the darker area to the lighter area.
I then colour the next area with the palest colour - blue pearl
I then added some more of the mid shade - cornflower to the darker area
And blended as before, bring the colour from the dark to the light in a small circular motion, almost to the top edge of the jeans.
I then used the darkest shade - china blue - along the bottom right edges of the jeans
And blended as before with the blue pearl promarker
I have used the same technique with the turn-ups
I have used the same colouring principles for other colours of trousers, I find its especially effective with browns using cinnamon, cocoa and umber.
