I was recently sent a colouring book from GMC distribution. Priced at £5.99 each, there are 9 different books available including day of the dead and travel landmarks, I was sent the Dapper Animals edition.
At the beginning of the book there was lovely introduction with tips on how to make each image your own.
Talk of patterns. Adding more to ones already drawn, ways in which you can make them stand out.
Words about the different types of tools that can be used ie pencils, gel pens, crayons etc and seeing just what can happen when you mix them together.
Colour wheels and images showing you just what can be done with different colours when put together. How certain colours can compliment one another.
I have to admit I find colouring very therapeutic. It allows my mind to wander, gets the imagination working, a bit of escape as such.
I've had fun experimenting with line work, shading, colour matching. You can see one of my efforts below :
With colouring books now outselling cookery books in certain countries, it may be time for you to jump on the band wagon.I'd certainly recommend these books. I've been sending out not so subtle hints to my husband that I need more of them!!
