Monochrome delight

Pencils, I love my pencils - it has been such fun today, colouring in this adorable Mo Manning image with my Caran D'Ache Supracolor Soft, they are an absolute pleasure to work with.

This weeks challenge on Mo's Challenge Blog  # 81 "Monochromatic" and here is my entry:

I love the detail in Mo's images, it gives me the opportunity to hone my shading skills and practice faces, my favourite part!!

Having done quite a few "pink" projects lately, I thought even I could do with a change.

Image: Mo Manning "What's Cooking"
Paper: Basic Grey and V & A
Colouring: Caran D'Ache pencils
Misc: Charm from stash, Marianne D die

Well, I shall keep this short and sweet, thanks for looking and I'll see you again soon with yet more arty crafty goodness.

Hi Jane...are those pencils like Prisma pencils? I'm just starting to color with pencils...although my shading isn't nearly as detailed as yours! Maybe someday? I love this little Mo Manning image...and I definitely need to pull mine out and color her! Thanks so much for joining us this week at Mo's...and for entering the GD call! Hugs. Pat

I love your muted colour choice.
I think I actually like this one above your copic work.
I love the cross hatching and texture that the pencils give.
Wow again Jane.
