“Fantastical Fern” – Ink design by Johanna Basford in Secret Garden, colored by me and John.
That’s right folks, my obsession with adult coloring continues. Truth be told, I’m a little afraid of starting to sew again after hurting my back a few weeks ago, so I’ve decided to just take it easy for the time being. I can still feel twinges of pain when I move in certain ways, so apparently the back is a fickle and slow-healing beast. Ok back, you win, coloring it is for now.
Back issues aside though, I’m really into this coloring thing. 🙂
I wanted to do something green for my next coloring page, after all the reds and oranges in Garden of Fire and blues and purples in Enchanted Evening (yes, the flowery names continue…). I found a page with all leaves (no flowers) and set to work with my Prismacolor pencils. This page also involved lots of warm beverages and heavy sweaters since it was seriously chilly this weekend. Brrrr!!
A few in-progress shots of the page coming together:
Interestingly, the open spaces on this page were quite a bit smaller and narrower than on previous pages I’ve colored, so I actually had to be really careful with this one. Despite my efforts to be precise and keep my pencil tips as sharp as possible (hard to do without breaking them!), there is some coloring outside the lines going on here. Do I feel guilty? Maybe. But after all, it’s an adult coloring book. I’m pretty sure the point is not to feel guilty. 🙂
I sincerely hope any of you experiencing the deep freeze this weekend stayed warm and comfortable. And to those of you in the southern hemisphere experiencing gorgeous warm weather right now, consider me jealous! Have a wonderful week, everyone!
