Dover Coloring Book

Text Box with description of Book

This was one of the first Dover coloring books I completed as a "mature" colorist, and it remains one of my favorites. It contains a wide range of design levels from simple to very complex, so no matter whether I had a small break in my schedule, or a long relaxing evening to spend coloring, this book served my needs. Here are some favorites, from pages 11, 15, 25, 16, 41, 44, and 45, respectively.

Pink and Teal Design

Optical Illusion

The next one, one of my top favorites in the book, is nothing but circles on the page. I created this random pattern, and really didn’t know what the end result would be. The only rule I set for myself was that each color was done with adjoining circles—no skipped spaces. I think it turned out quite interesting!

Chart-like Design

This last one I did with pencil. Most of the rest of the book was done in crayon, but this had such tiny details, I needed to use pencil to stay in the lines. It is also another of my very favorites, and the only one that is actually a picture of something, not an abstract design.
