Nevaeh

Sorry I’ve been MIA again, I got not so good results from the doctors after extensive tests, and have been backwards and forwards to hospital appointments for further tests, scans etc.  Shoo, I’ve not had time to blink this past month.  Anyway, I managed to find a window to get some colouring done and had my favourite Saturated Canary image, Nevaeh, all printed out and ready to colour.  Apologies for the grainy photos, I am struggling to get used to a new camera.  Ugh I am so tempted to go back to the old one – at least I know that works lol.

I used copic markers to colour her and only used a beige pencil for the shading around the image

I dug out some older Maja papers for this one.  I have mountains of paper that I really should get round to using.
