I received two stunning watercoloring books for adults titled Painterly Days – one on Flowers and one on Woodland. Both are especially designed for artist wannabe in your if you desire to explore coloring with watercolors. The images are printed on luxe watercolor paper and are ready to be painted on at a moment’s notice.
These two books are great help you take some time to relax after a busy day or a stressful event. I find that coloring help me to slow down and remove the weight that might have stacked over my shoulders at times. No wonder that the niche of adult coloring books is still very much active and growing!
The Flowers book has 25 floral sketches while the Woodland book offers 25 woodland sketches. Each of the sketches are printed on lovely watercolor paper which invites artistic experimentation with only a brush and paint. The page is double-sided, offering the opportunity to paint the same page in different ways.
The author shares painting tips for each sketch and advice for discovering the artist within. Also included is a painting tutorial and handy color wheel. Each book is small enough to carry anywhere and simple to use. Creativity is an escape, and this book offers a delightful way to make art regardless of skill level.
Bottom line, if you desire to unwind and have a bit of personal time you should consider taking up some coloring books for adults. It is amazing how much good it does on you… Consider getting some this Christmas season for yourself or for family and friends who likes to color.
Three other Painterly Days titles are also available: Pattern, Kristy’s Spring Cutting Garden and Kristy’s Summer Cutting Garden. You can also get the 12 colored pencils as well as the 18 watercolors and paintbrush.
These beautiful books are available at your favorite bookstore, even on amazon.ca and amazon.com.
