This is the first in a series of grayscale coloring tutorials featuring the coloring of the talented grayscale colorist, Jones Flores.
In this tutorial, Jones colors a picture of a succulent from the "Beautiful Nature" grayscale coloring book. She shows you how she colors over the grayscale with soft pastels and hair oil (argan oil) for blending. In addition, she uses colored pencils, ink pens and fibre tip pens with a paintbrush to enhance details and further intensify the impact of the final picture.
This video provides a speed coloring* of Jones' entire coloring process from start to finish. Instructional text is included so you can both read and watch the steps she follows.

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!
