Angel with animals coloring page

Here's the coloring page. The angel ended up looking a bit like my seven year old daughter, which I didn't mean to do, but I'm happy about it.

I'll be moving on to watercolor and colored pencil next. The coloring page looks stiff and like stained glass, which I'm OK with, but I'm hoping to get the painting a bit looser and livelier. 

I went ahead and posted it on Illustration Friday where the prompt for this week is "talk." I admit this is a stretch, but perhaps a small one. Communication is occurring, though not actual talk.

On another note, I haven't been doing my sketching of great art because my kids gave me a most thoughtful gift, a month of classes from the Society of Visual Storytelling. So until that runs out, I'll my learning time will be spent there.


  1. The angel and her friends interupted their conversation to welcome in a stranger passing by. I recall a little girl in a red sweater holding chickens who would be right at home with the gathering of creatures here. I can see how she became your angel.

  2. I am working hard on the finished watercolor and colored pencil version of this design,and sadly the resemblance to Alicia has gone away. Kinda sad. Though I can't wait to show you the finished piece--some time next week, I hope.
