 Hi Nelson, I don't have any special techniques. Layering different colours and light pressure are the most important in my opinion. I don't very often use a single colour to achieve the colour I want. I blend using a piece of felt, a cotton bud or a blending pencil. I very rarely use solvents. I apply the pencils using circular, oval, straight and crosshatch methods. I am sure the puriste would shudder seeing me work, I am not one for convention and I used to like to experiment.

Have a good day pal.  Ted

No I never did zentangles, I might try it though :D

To bad you didnt do it :( I have seen many colouring books and there is always different styles and themes. I didnt find any that looks like your style... have you tried selling a few online?

Hi Nelson! I look forward to see more of your work, who knows you might inspire me to try out new techniques and themes :D

I have to ask you this...do you do colouring books? You got the right style for it :3
