TIPS, TECHNIQUES & TUTORIALS
In this post you will find:
This is the second grayscale coloring guide that Jones Flores has so kindly shared with me to share with all of you! The other is for the owl in Beautiful Creatures and focuses on feather and eye coloring techniques.
Below you will find Jones' step-by-step directions for coloring the leaf and water drops (a downloadable version of the guide is also provided at the end of the post). She provides wonderful step-by-step directions on exactly how to successfully color a water drop. In addition, you can see Jones and her techniques in action with the video tutorial below on how to color the leaf & water drops. Be sure to download the practice sheet (provided below the water drop instructions) that I created to go along with her instructions so you can test out Jones' techniques before coloring the complete leaf in your coloring book. I tried to provide LOTS of water drops for extra practice :-).
Please show your support for and thanks to Jones for everything she is so generously taking the time to teach and share with all of us by liking her Facebook page, following her on Instagram, subscribing to her YouTube channel and checking out her web site.
Coloring the Water Drops
The left hand side is the "Coloring Techniques" so that you can see how the color and texture changes as you build up the layers. The "Coloring Process" on the right is how you apply those layers & techniques to the water drop.

I'm a Mom of 2 from Vancouver, Canada. I recently discovered grayscale coloring and loved it so much I published Beautiful Creatures and Beautiful Nature because there were no high quality grayscale coloring books to be found. Join me as I write about the grayscale coloring techniques I have learned and that I am continuing to discover!
