Here is The Morning Pool, the second lovely picture from A Colouring Book of Hours: Castle.

You can find the book at

This time Sharpie coloured pens were used. I found that as the colours are so strong and vibrant it was really effective to used dots, patterning and to, on occasion, leave the page uncoloured in places in order to contrast and show off the lovely ink. the paper is so thick that there was no bleed through to the page beneath. Wonderful!

One other piece of advice... if you go on to colour in the following page straight away with colouring pencils, or something else that uses some pressure, then pop a piece of paper in between the page with the ink on and the facing page. Otherwise the ink may transfer to the page facing it. Basically, give the ink (or water colours, paints, anything that needs to dry) time to dry before closing up the book or pop some paper in there to blot it for you. As you can see on the picture of the final image, I was a little too enthusiastic and neglected to do this... On a positive note, this may give you some clues as to the medium used in the next video which will be 'The Labyrinth Summit' and will be out next week...

Also... just in case you were wondering about the #BOHemian hashtag... BOH = Book Of Hours...

The beautiful, bouncy music is 'Thing-a-me-jig & Catherine's Jig'. This piece was written and performed by the the fantastic Ben and Alfie and can be found on their first album Milestones. They have two more great albums and you can find their music on iTunes, Spotify and on their website:
