    Gerber Daisy

    When my real creative juices won't flow, but I still want to be creative, I turn to my grown up coloring book.. It's simple, quick and a perfect stress reliever.. I probably have more of these than I should.. I just thought I would share one with you, and wonder if anybody else has participated in this delightfull pastime..

    I appreciate this work

    I love floral coloring books . Some of these are beautifully drawn. It is so relaxing and has been a lovely thing to do with my grand girls. Thank you for sharing and giving us all encouragement.

    Good idea. If you find tinting line drawings or 'coloring books' fun, you can find someone who did it really amazingly at the turn of the century or thereabouts: Alfonse Mucha.

    He was pretty much the stand out artist for this kind of Art Nouveau thing. He essentially did coloring book style work where he did the line work and the color (unless he had apprecntices). But you can see how he could color. and his linework was not the same heavy weight all around nor was it all black.

    Just some thoughts if you like working with line. You needn't do Nouveau particularly. But you can perhaps modify the coloring book line or when you're looking for drawings to color, you can do so with an eye for some wider range possibilities. Nothing saying you can't modify the coloring book drawings you already have either.

    Your color on that flower is great by the way. I can see you like it and have an affinity for that process, so I thought I would offer this info, because it's a very respectable direction. Well done, Rick.

    Your not the only one Rick, you did a great job on the daisy.

    Here is one of mine that I used to practice some coloring and shading.

    Your secret is out Rick, but it's clear you are not alone. LOL.

    Coloring book, no, never tried it in my childhood and now i can try in on Artrage Ah, now I knew that's called line work, thank D Akey about that Alfonse Mucha artist, I saw those paintings before, just didn't know what type. Now I knew. Thanks to both Rick and Dakey brought this coloring book topic up

    I should be in bed, rather than colouring in! Good fun though!

    Thank you all for the comments.. It's nice to know that others fiddle such as I do.. "D" I was not aware of Alfonse Mucha.. But I am now.. His paintings have greased the little wheels of my mind.. This could be a dangerous thing..
