playing with promarkers

I coloured the background for this one following a copic tutorial on youtube, and it is so hard to get a perfect colour match so it is a bit hit and miss, but I am pleased with the finished article. I love colouring stamps but often the hard work is done for you in the image, but with this background you have to get a bit arty and experiment with light and texture. I think next time I will outline the clouds in a cool grey 2, I used cool grey 4 and it is far too dark. Tbh I only used 4 because it had a fine tip on already and I was being lazy :(

I wish I could remember all the colours I used on the sky, like a numpty I didnt write it down but if I remember correctly it was denim, pastel blue and cornflower for the fluffy clouds and rockpool, duck egg and morning mist with pastel blue as the sea/horizon line. (morning mist is the one I am not 100% sure of so if you want to experiment go for it ;)

I'd like to enter this one into
