The timing of the article on "adult coloring" couldn't be more perfect! It was only a week ago that I discovered some amazing, intricate coloring books at my local craft store and, though I hadn't colored since I was a kid, I couldn't wait to try it again.
I've had a set of 48 Prismacolor pencils in my art supply stash for at least 15 years; it was time to break them out! I knew things would get crazy if I had too many color choices, so I decided to try monochrome. I pulled out all the colors of green and blue in my box of pencils, 14 in all. Coloring was so soothing and enjoyable and the time flew by! Afterwards, I went over the lines with a black gel pen to bring them back to life. This was so much fun, I'm thinking of doing one in all oranges, pinks and reds. 🙂
