colouring book.2Isn’t this a beautiful colouring book for adults? It should inspire your use of colour, your expression of beauty, maybe even ideas for a story. 

And just because it’s an adult colouring book, that doesn’t mean it isn’t good for younger persons, too.  🙂

Here are a few of the twenty-four colouring pages found between those pretty covers.

Colouring? Or another form of creative relaxation?

As I mentioned in my December 29 post I received some books for Christmas. Two of those are colouring books for adults.

Now, you may think a colouring book is a colouring book … all much the same, no real challenge to them. You would be mistaken – as I discovered. There is so much detail to the drawings to colour it took me awhile to get started, but once I did – I found it to be relaxing and enjoyable. I also discovered the perfectionist in me still lives. To be honest, it took me awhile to feel relaxed colouring because of the perfectionist me, but I’m doing better now, although I sometimes tend to hyper focus once I start something new.

Regardless of my fretting over what colour will go with which, and should I even start this picture … it’s so busy! … I have now completed three pages. The next thing, though, is I’m finding colouring could be my newest distraction from my writing goals!  oh me

This is the first one I completed and so far it’s my favourite.

hummingbirdThere are so many ways to interpret this art with colour. I’m not sure what my choice says about ME – (any ideas?) – seeing as I used and varied all the colours available to me.  🙂 Another more subtle shading would have resulted in a calmer image.

Ah well, there is a lot I have yet to learn about myself, I’m sure.  

How about you? Have you found a creative form of relaxation that suits you, something that nurtures creative you?

Thanks for reading, and Creative Musings!  🙂
