I couldn't wait to color this picture. It gave me a chance to use a lot of different types and brands of medium to work with. It's far from perfect, but I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

Used materials and techniques

I used two brands of pencils: Prismacolor and Sudee Stile (which were the first ones I ever bought). I also used The Fine Touch Metallic Colored pencils and STA Metallic Color Markers.

  • As always, Carla, your artwork is truly gorgeous! I love the soft colors that you used here. And I am glad you had a chance to use different types of coloring medium. It’s always interesting for me to see how different materials are used together and how they complement each other. Thank you for turning this Tree into art! I love it☺

  • Thank you so much Anastasia! I have to admit that once I got started on it, it took on a life of its own and took me someplace I hadn’t planned on going with it. But, I’m glad I listened to it. I like it much better than what I had visioned in my mind before I started. I really enjoyed coloring this one.

    • Yeah, I know what you mean. Sometimes you just need to follow your gut and trust that it’s working out in the end. Because when it comes to art, I think we need to rely more on our heart than on the brain. The heart knows better. I love it that you feel that too☺
