Bright Blooms from Twilight Garden

Twilight Garden is one of my favorite colouring books. The original illustrations created by Maria Trolle are really enchanting. The images all seem to be connected, depicting a natural and insightful world. We are invited to stroll through a beautiful summer garden, where rabbits and deer hop and hedgehogs cuddle in the shade. Butterflies fly above the wildflowers and you can even find owls and foxes among the plants. I just want to start this journey and colour every page!🎨

I used Holbein pencils to complete the drawings and Pablo pencils on the background. In this one I decided to treat the background as an abstract image, filling in the shapes with colour transitions that complemented the figures. I think the Pablo pencils were a great choice as they can apply multiple layers creating beautiful gradients. It takes patience to layer colours with pencils, but the results are definitely worthy. I had a great time working on this one! 😃
