@@Embryo thanks mate. I might be getting ahead of myself thinking of water colour pencils, some ordinary ones might be best for now. It's good to have some recommendations. :)

If you need any further info, let me know. I've been laid up for a while so spent a good chunk of the time researching art supplies :D

If you are on FB there are loads of good groups. Some of then even give away free sample pages from books!

Happy colouring :smokin:

Really loving that mandala, I could see myself spending dark winter nights with my tongue poking out. What book did it come from? Thanks :v:

Getting more inspired here. :)

But I don't want to lash out a ton of money on "nice pencils" and risk using them once, I know what I am like. I watched a video on Youtube with Peta Hewitt and she says something like her techniques work with Faber-Castell Polychromos and also cheaper things like Faber Castell Classics and you can get 36 of those for £13 which isn't too bad. Are the Polychromos like water colour pencils, ie. you can spray a bit of water on it and move the colour around?

@@BigJohnny love the pic. :) So you used pencils and pens on that? BTW, if you download Irfanview and open your photo in it and press "R" it will turn the pic 90 degrees to the right, you can then save it and it will be the right way around.

Cheers mate. Yeah I used pencils and pens. I uploaded it from my phone. I'm sure there's a way to rotate it but I just haven't worked out how.

Thanks man. So the more pastelly bits are the pencils and the more bold bits the pens I assume? It makes a nice effect and the black really sets it off. :)

I found this topic quite interesting because I'm certain I'm autistic (undiagnosed but plenty of behaviour to back it up plus family the same) and I find having to maintain consistency in the pattern far too demanding. I couldn't do with making each tessellate different, either! It took me years to stop randomly counting bricks in walls and then this colouring craze comes out!

I do hope you enjoy it and find it relaxing all the same!

I can't draw for shit and I don't enjoy it. But I do enjoy colouring so I'll still to that. No point doing something you don't enjoy, eh?
