Work continues on Local Color, my South End Boston coloring book for adults.
When I’ve gotten fairly far along with a page, I like to print it out and start coloring it. I do that for two reasons:
- It helps me see where I’ve forgotten to put lines in.
- I love to work in color, and I don’t get to do that when I’m working on these pages that consist only of black lines on a white background.
I was just about done with this drawing of the Flock clothing store on Shawmut Avenue, so I decided to print it out and start coloring. I think this store has a great looking sign.
I don’t think anyone should have to adhere to any rules when coloring in. My feeling is: Whatever colors appeal to you, go for it! And that’s what I did. Here it is, a work in progress…
More to come soon.
