Jasmine Becket-Griffith Colouring - Portrait with A Spiderling

Good evening! I thought would share something different with you tonight! I got the Jasmine Becket-Griffith Halloween Colouring Book for Christmas as I am a huge fan of hers. I have several of her prints and figurines and was lucky enough to meet her at the Whitby Goth Festival a couple of years ago and spent a while chatting with Jasmine and her husband. Really lovely people!

I spent the afternoon last Sunday colouring away one of the smaller images from her colouring book. I photocopied the page onto my Super Smooth Card, so I could colour it with my Copics and to be honest I don't want to ruin the book with my markers. The paper in it isn't really suitable for Copics anyway and I don't want the colouring to bleed through as there is a description of the following image on the back of the colouring page, which would be ruined! I'm also a bit OCD about things like that and if I did the pages out of order my OCD wouldn't like it! This way I can do them as I like!

Anyway here she is...This image is called Portrait with A Spiderling (You can find the original painting here) and is one of the smaller images where there are 4 to a page. She ended up being about 3 x 4 inches, but her hair took me ages to do! I do love how she came out though! I think I will end up colouring all 4 from the same page and either add to my colouring journal or make some ATC type cards with them and add them to my Jasmine wall in the bedroom!
