A coloring adventure - La Plume (Mucha)

At the American Book Center in Amsterdam I came across this Alphonse Mucha Coloring book by Pomegranate Publishing. And of course I just had to have it. But since I didn't want to color in the pages in the book, I bought some heavy duty printer paper at Van der Linde in Amsterdam (the Fabriano Academia paperpack 160gms suitable for inkjet printers) and printed a page which I scanned from the book, La Plume.
Finished page and the pencils I used for it. Derwent artist pencils and a caran d'ache colorless blender. That gets the smooth transitional colortotange done.
I used Derwent Artist Pencils, a caran d'ache blender and a faber castell pencil eraser for this project. I love these Derwent pencils, they have such beautiful and smudge proof leds. And with the blender the colors just pop and look creamy. Definitely love how the page turned out.

La Plume coloring process

I actually started with it last year and gradually added color to the page when I had time for it. Showing you the process is a lot better than talking about it, so here is a slideshow:

See a behind the scenes for this coloring book on the Pomegranate blog which contains a free download from the book.

And check out my Pinterest with a few Mucha Coloring book pages I found via google search (La Plume is also on there) 

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a colorful weekend.
