My! – it has been a while, since last time I checked in to this blog. But let’s just say that things have been pretty hectic and dramatic in my life, and I really want to keep that out of this blog, otherwise it would disturb this little gem’s life and spirit. So, I’ll keep it short but sweet: A lot of you following me have – to some extent – got a whiff of the events in my life the past 6 months since I got my new job in June, and things have been quite chaoitc ever since, both on work and in my private life. But – enough about all that. Now we’re talking about coloring, art and indulging in our little escapist adventure here 😉
Some weeks ago I stumpled upon a very talented artist named Valencia. Not only did her paintings have this distinct joy and bubbly feeling – I was also knocked down by the colorful images she used. I mean – will you have a look at that!
Valencia, I have to admit… I am in awe of your painted art. I had to know what was inside this creative mind. So I sent her a bunch of questions, which she has been so kind to answer for me – and for you, my dear readers, to let you get inside her head where all this amazing artwork comes from:
2. What are your preferred mediums? (pencils or pens or water color for example)
3. Do you have a preferred coloring artist or more – who is your Top 3 for inspiration? (it could also be coloring authors)
4. Do you follow anyone on YouTube for example – and who? Any suggestions if people wants to improve their skills?
5. Who is your favorite coloring book author (if you have any) – and why? Any favorite books?
6. Where did you learn to draw so beautifully?
7. Why do you think coloring is important for people?
8. Any new techniques or mediums you want to try out more or haven’t tried yet?
9. Where do you find your inspiration?
10. What is your best advice or tip for new colorists?
If you’d like to see more of Valencia’s incredible artwork just go to her page and follow her – like the rest of the 800 ish followers. (Seriously – I can’t believe it. She should have thousands of followers by now with that amazing talent. But again – that’s what I like about this blog. It makes it possible to share all the wonderful and amazing artists out there! )
