I had the amazing opportunity to review these gorgeous markers from Tombow USA. They sent me the Bright palette set and the Secondary palette set. Each set came with 10 pens-- 9 colours and 1 colourless blender. There were only two markers that were the same, so I had a total of 16 different colours to work with, which is plenty given the endless possibilities with shading and blending different colours together!
Here's a great technique I've come to learn from colouring, a little something called rendering-- otherwise known as cross-hatching!
Colouring in one direction, especially with coloured pencils, shows the line strikes as well as the white gaps that weren't filled in that sometimes we don't even realize.
But wait until you see the comparison between what a rendered coloured area and a non-rendered area looks like next to each other.
You'll never colour in a single direction ever again!
Stay tuned for next week's colouring technique where gel pens and coloured pencils come together :)
Happy colouring, my coloristas!
I'm Kourtney, and I'm a mother of two litle girls and the wife of a Navy sailor. I review colouring books and products for publishers and art supply companies to give my Coloristas a guide to buying and growing their collections. And of course I love to colour any chance I get (mostly when the kids are asleep!)
