You can use watercolors in coloring books with some degree of success but recently we were excited to see three new books available that are specifically aimed at colorists and designed for watercolor paints and watercolor pencils. Each coloring book has 25 beautiful drawings on pages that are double-sided, offering the opportunity to paint the same page in different ways. The author shares painting tips for each sketch and advice for discovering the artist within. Also included is a painting tutorial and handy color wheel. Each book is small enough to carry anywhere and simple to use.
Beginner Watercolor Painting with Painterly Days | Empress of Dirt
Watercolor coloring books are a great way for beginners to try watercolor painting. The watercolor books here are geared toward adults. You can also use pencils, pencil crayons, markers, and acrylic paints, so your creative options are wide open. Artist Kristy Rice has kicked it up a notch with this gorgeous 3-book Painterly Days series with woodland, flower, and pattern themes. My mission with this blog has always been to share the things that bring me that inner joy. Nothing makes me happier than to see this same person, as an adult, brush themselves off, press the reset button, and try again.
