This great coloring book, with its big, bold lines, is easy enough for young colorists to enjoy, yet creative enough to hold the interest of us older
artists. I suppose you could say it is more relaxing than challenging, but I still found ways to challenge myself to do something unique with each page.
In the first picture, from page 4, I experimented with different shades of yellows and bronze. For the overlapping squares in the next picture, page 6, I created a splotchy effect with pencils, then colored over it with crayon. I tried to make the paisley-ish design on page 14 look like brocade, using metallic crayons in shades of golds silver, copper, and bronze.
The next picture, on page 17, I call "Amoeba" for obvious reasons. Then I layered multiple colors of crayon to create a marbleized bead effect for the picture on page 21. In the last picture, from page 29, I used earth tones to border the bright geometric shapes.
