I love the whimsical illustrations in the Creative Haven adult coloring book collection, and this book of Owls by Marjorie Sarnat is no exception. There are 31 delightful designs to get your creative juices going.
Each owl (and the background scene) is adorned with flowers, paisleys and pattern creating lovely tapestries of color and design. They overall affect is cute, quirky and charming. Really delightful.
The 31 designs are printed single-sided to protect your work and are perforated to make coloring on a flat surface easy. (Makes framing your masterpieces easy too!) If you do color with the pages still in the book, best to use a backing sheet behind the one you are working on. The paper is bright white and reasonably thick. It accepts colors from a variety of mediums very well, but won't prevent markers or pens from bleeding through.
Each captivating image contains plenty of fine detail to keep you engaged, and enough space to explore shading and blending techniques.
It's a wonderful coloring book and belongs in the collection of owl lovers and anyone with a bit of fanciful imagination who wants to brighten their day.
