Underwater Castle

The challenge for the last two weeks at Make it Crafty Club House was to color rainbows and I thought I’d try an underwater rainbow since the new underwater images were just released.  😀  So I printed out Underwater Castle from Make it Crafty and this is what I came up with.  Don’t forget to check out what everyone else made too in the Rainbows Gallery.

For my coloring I started with the rainbow and made long streaks while ignored everything else in the water.  I wanted a really bright look and knew that after I added blue things would get muted a little so I made sure to use brighter, more neon colors.  After adding the blue streaks, I then colored the rest of the image.

For the sand I tried to go for the bright white that is sometimes seen in the shallow tropical waters – you know, the paradise kind of water that is crystal clear and almost looks like glass.  Yeaah… that’s where I wanted to be.  😀  I used E44, E43, E42, E41, and E40 but stayed more towards the lighter colors.  Then I used bright colors again for the coral, seashells, fish and everything.

The last thing I did was use my white gel pen and color in the bubbles to make them stand out a little more.  The image actually didn’t take that long to color, maybe 30 minutes, and by starting with the rainbow I felt I could toss it out if needed without wasting too much effort.  However, it didn’t turn out so bad so I didn’t need to start over.  😀

That’s about it for the rainbow challenge.  You should give it a try with your next water project!  Thanks for dropping by and I hop you’ve been a little inspired today.  *Hugs
