Improving colouring on my own

This time, I tried to add a background colour 😉

I used Stabilo points 88 mini. (0,4mm) for the drawing, still taken from Secret Garden postcards by J.Basford. 

For the background color I used Caran d’Ache colour pencils ( Lemon yellow 666 240 and Grey 666 005).

The result is more pleasing; to me anyway but I think I made a mistake. I coloured the background after coloring the drawing. Wrong! Next time, I’ll start with the background first. 

Still a long way to go but it is a relaxing activity!
