We had some great entries for our free February Coloring Challenge, and some of the best, along with the winner, are shown at the end of this post.
Go with the flow!
Will you go with a traditional color scheme – greens and blues? Or perhaps you see a tropical scene with these fish and crack open the vibrant colors? Go with the flow and send us your finished picture for a chance to win!
The coloring challenge deadline is April 15th and is open to everyone, any age or ability are welcome. Our favorites will be showcased next month and Jeggle will pick a winner.
Shake your tail feather!
Our owl themed page produced some inspired coloring last month. Thank you to all of those that entered, it is brilliant to see both beginners and advanced colorists taking up the challenge and we look forward to more of the same this month!
Here are some of our favorites along with the winner of this month’s contest.
Jan Pellizer really went to town with her entry, transforming the coloring page by some great additions of her own. This family of owls is vibrant and quirky with a real aztec feel to the patterns and colors that she has chosen. Great work!
Frank Patterson gives us a softer coloring page with a great use of coloring pencils to provide a lot of texture and some nice blending on the feathers of the birds. Frank doesn’t give a hoot with his slogan, but we love the coloring style and humor he has used!
Diane Camille Reyes Adraque showed some lovely touches in her entry. I love the way Diane has added some detail to the feathers on the brown and yellow owl and the choice of colors and blending on the red and green bird are wonderful. The extra shading on the edges of the leaves really adds some nice dimension to the picture.
Dianne Bunn spoilt us with another great entry this month using some lovely pencil shading, combined with a great color pallette to produce a lovely depth on the blue owl. You can achieve a similar eefect in your own coloring with our helpful guide here[link]. The leaves also show some lovely shading and produce some nice depth to give a polished finish for the picture.
This month’s winner is Veva Kratka who posted her entry on Facebook. Like our other entries Veva used colored pencils to produce a lovely textured effect to the feathers, but what we really liked about Veva’s entry is the lined effect she has achieved on the blue owl. It looks like this was achieved with a white pencil overlay, or maybe by coloring over some physical texture. Either way it is a lovely effect. We also really liked the extra detail of the white spots on the owl and the choice of colors for all of the birds in the picture. Great work Veva!
