Bright Books

I used lots of jewel tones in this picture that remind me of a library, but it could be done in mysterious Americana browns, reds, oranges, and blues. The possibilities are endless. Have fun with your picture.

Brown Bear

Here is a traditionally colored brown bear with a rather smudged little green fairy. Maybe you could brighten her up in your effort. Also, if I did this again, I might make the change from a blue side, to a teal side, more green or yellow-green. This could be done beautifully in reds, oranges, and yellows as well. Enjoy!

Fairy and Birdbath

Colorers tell me they have a hard time choosing colors for their pictures. Well, I'm here to tell you, so do I! But I'm used to the fear, since failure is an artist's common fare.

I'm going to post a series of colored pictures for the next 15 weeks from my "Magical Fairies & Flowers" color book, to help inspire my favorite coloring artists in their color choices. (For better or worse). Even if I don't mess up a picture, I always feel like I could do better if I did it again. Maybe you can build on my efforts and mistakes and do better.

Starting with this . . . Here is a possible way of coloring the fairy and birdbath scene using evening colors because of the early night moon. Enjoy your coloring!
