Pierrot Reading – Coloring with Copic Markers

One of the primary reasons Curator Prime publishes vintage coloring books is that there are so few story-based, detailed coloring books available. This means, once a book is published, Curator Prime has a new set of illustrations to color. This Curator Coloring using Copic markers is from The Art of Aubrey Beardsley, Volume 1.

While a relatively simple design, Curator Prime has a multitude of work-in-progress photographs to share with you, should you wish to re-create her interpretation and avoid her less-than-successful experiments. A complete list of markers used is noted at the end, as well as a link to a free downloadable coloring page of an Aubrey illustration.
