Dover Coloring Book

Text Box with description of Book

With some of these design coloring books, the colors seem to fall into place. You look at the finished product and say "Ah, that was just right." But this one presented more of a challenge. Though the pictures are interesting and I enjoyed coloring them, I don't have quite as many "Ahs" as usual. One tool that came in handy was a set of chunky RoseArt rainbow pencils that I applied on the detail work. (I got them from Amazon.) Another technique I used was to outline parts of the snowflake in a bold color, then use a pastel color to fill in, or leave part of it white. But, as is usually the case, looking back over my finished artwork, I am much more pleased than I was at the time I was doing them.

Some of the designs are single snowflakes and others are in multiples. For the first, I outlined each snowflake in metallic gold pencil, then used pastel colors for fill. The second is pastel crayon colors. The third and fourth are just crayon, and the fifth is crayon with the rainbow pencils mentioned above. The last two are in crayon, the sixth being outlined in turquoise.
