With Hurricane Harvey here, I have had lots of time to do my Bible art journaling. This is one I did recently. Matthew 5:16 reminds us to let our light shine for others so God may be glorified. How hard this is sometimes, to always be positive and be a light. Many times, as Christians, we are expected to act a certain way, but we are also human just like everyone else. I am reminded in this verse, how important it is to maintain a positive attitude and smile, because what we do or say and how we act as a Christian can other lead others or steer others away from Christ.
This particular page was sketched out with a regular pencil, then I used Prisma colored pencils to color and shade. The outline was done with an Ek Pen, that I bought on clearance from Hobby Lobby. It doesn’t bleed. No prepping was needed to do this page.
Tips on coloring and shading with colored pencils:
Start with the lightest color first.
Then use a darker shade to shadow.
I even used a light brown, very lightly,next around the fire flies.
I then go back to the main color, which was yellow around the fire flies and blend the darker color and brown in.
