Now I am enjoying colouring once more but this time it's just for fun I coloured this birthday card for my Mum from the cute postcard book Don't Quit Your Daydream by Bethany Robertson
Colouring is a bit like knitting and crochet - you don't expect a quick result but there's no rush either. You become absorbed in the task of colouring and working towards a finished picture which you're happy with. You don't need to spend a lot on materials and you don't need to learn a new skill. Everyone can colour in!
Johanna Basford. Her illustrated colouring books are beautifully detailed and are really fun to colour in. I see amazing completed pictures on social media of Johanna's illustrations by talented colourists. I'm in awe of what others can produce with the humble coloured pencil.
this book since it was published in 2013, I'd never actually coloured in a single page of it until very recently. Maybe it's because the images are printed on both sides of each page and I couldn't quite bring myself to colour in one side in favour of the other. (I was delighted when I found that it was also produced as a book of postcards and I've completed several of those.) Here, then, is my very first coloured page from Secret Garden.
