Adult Coloring Book Techniques

I have created a new Facebook group called Adult Coloring Book Techniques.This group is for colorists and artists to share and discuss coloring and designing techniques, drawing styles, mediums used, etc. Please be kind and respectful to one another. No spam, cursing, porn, or anything I find offensive allowed. I am the administrator and I will do my best to keep the peace. Feel free to share pages you have colored or designed, techniques, and materials used. All posts must include the artist's name of the original artwork or the title of the book.
Artists are invited to create an album to share free pages to color or tutorials. Be sure to include your name/name of the book on the image.
Posts to sell anything must be approved by admin.

Join me for lots of coloring fun!

How I Relax and Unwind

As a professional artist, you might think that in order to relax and unwind I would take up a hobby like golf or some other totally unrelated activity. However, I love to color in adult coloring books, mine as well as those by other artists. Coloring gives me the same right brain loss of time that my professional works do without the stress of having to be concerned with trying to make it professional and marketable. Stress and daily concerns melt away when I'm coloring. If there were enough hours in a day I would color every page in every book I feature on this blog. It wouldn't pay the bills and I would wind up in a relaxed puddle on the floor. Would that be a bad thing?

Coloring Page from Flowers, Animals, Birds, and Still Lifes Expanded Edition (Relax in the Shade Adult Coloring Books) (Volume 1)

Lots of layering with Crayola colored pencils, touches of Bic Markers, and eye shadow in the background. Colored by me from one of my books.

Harry Potter: The Official Coloring Book #1

My daughter has read every book and watched every movie, several times. When she found out I was getting this for her for Christmas, she said, "That's wicked cool!" I think she likes it.
