The trick to coloring my pineapple..........TP mostly. But I started by inking with B. Banana, rock and rolled on Summer Sun ink pad then sponge daubered more SS and BB. Then it needed more.........so I TP'd with Ruby Red and added SSun chalk around the edge with a q-tip. Finally.....I got the look I wanted. The BG of the main image I just TP's with different colors. You just dab and smear until you get the look you want. Thanks for your comments girls, Nancy

You did such a nice job with the coloring of your pineapple, Nancy! It just glows with warmth while at the same time being so soft and dreamy looking. All the colors on this are really nice, and the sketch is perfect for this large image.
