  1. I so enjoy watching you do so with great detail and precision. I love the way you blend the colors so beautifully. After watching your coloring videos I bought the 120 set of Faber Castell Polychromos pencils....and I love them! They blend so smoothly and easily. But I would like to ask you a question...what kind of pencil extender do you use for your Polychromos pencils? I've tried several extenders but none fit because the Polychromos are wider than standard color pencils. I hope you can help me find the extender that fits these pencils. Thanks again for the sensational coloring videos....please keep making them! 😊 Paulette

    2. I read a review at that Derwent Pencil Extenders are fit with Faber Castell Polychromos. I'm thinking of buying this too.

  3. Hi
    I am looking for the Bruynzeel super sixties coloring pencils but I can not find them.
    I live in Australia.
    Do you know where I can get some.
    Thank you

  4. Hi, I was wondering why day 17 of colouring hasn't come out yet !!!BTW, I was making suggestions on how to improve the video presentations. It does not matter how long the actual coloring takes. But, if you haven't found a solution yet, please continue with what u r doing. Lots of people love your work!!!

    1. Thank you for your suggestions! I am currently working out plans for more videos in which I will try new ways of recording my colouring.

  5. Love your videos and your art!! Just watched your perspective video, one of the best demonstrations I have seen! You took something that can be difficult to explain and demonstrated it a way you could see and understand! Thank you!!

  6. Hi Henny, i also love colouring and test colouring books and pencils... When i watch your videos i just want to start colouring yet, because you have such a nice voice and i like your accent,it keeps me down. i love your way of colouring and i learned a lot of you. The first is, being patiently and take time for a picture till its perfect in your eyes. So thank you so much for doing those wonderful, fantastic videos and please never stop it!!! Lovliest greatings from the baltic sea in north germany, susi...

  7. I mentioned you in a post on my blog:

  8. Hi Henny,
    Thank you for all your coloring tutorials. I really like your patient, no rush style.
    I was wondering if you would consider doing a tutorial just on how you do your shading and shadows. Your shadows really make items, such as leaves, look like they're casting a realistic shadow on the surface below and not just touching the surface. I would love to learn how you achieve this effect! I would also like to learn how to add textures, such as crevices in rock work and bark on trees, etc.

  9. Thank you Henny for your videos and coloring tips and info. I find them so helpful and enjoyable to watch. I purchased your coloring program, yet have not given myself the block of time to get into it yet. It will be one of my gifts to myself this year when things calm down.
    I enjoy your observations of various colored pencils, especially since I have a number of different brands. I wondered if you have ever tried the Holbein line of pencils? They are Japanese oil based, and are a beautiful set to use, with their pastel colors as well as their vibrant pigments. If you get the chance to get them, I highly recommend them, since if I get good shading and blending with them, think what YOU could do - the ultimate pencil artist!!!!!! I too love my Polychromos, Luminance, and Pablos; but these Holbeins, wow!!! They are well worth the investment.

    Hi Henny
    I saw someone use intense paints which I believe are available now.
    I'm sorry I cannot remember whom it was but it would have been on you tube.
