With all that was going on between new releases, illness, yardening, and general life stuff with family, this image was worked on in a piece-meal fashion, which is not the way I like to work, over a rather long time. I'd rather sit down and finish in a few hours with no breaks at all, but I don't always get to work the way I want, and that's OK. ^^; It looks a little washed out in the photo because of the desk lamp, but I think you can get the general idea of the colors. Yellows, purples, pinks, reds, and a tiny hint of greens.
This is a page from my coloring book that I offered up in a giveaway. The line art is "Gardenia" or "Petals and Pearls". This is only the third time I have hand-colored one of the pages before giving/auctioning the book away. I think it gives the prize (the coloring book) an interesting twist. :D It is signed to the winner on the inside cover, too.
I hope it makes a safe trip across the Atlantic to the UK in reasonable time. ^_^ *fingers crossed*
