In case anyone is wondering if my coloring book images in shades of grey - no pun intended! :) might have a problem being colored and covered by pencils and gel pens etc. Here is a snapshot of one I was coloring to make sure pencils did cover the shades of grey! I took this pic as I began it so you can see it in process and see that the pencils cover very well! I only went forward with creating the coloring book once I saw they would work! And when you compare this one with the photo on the left up above you will see that I also lightened it for the book. The dark edges you see here are a lot lighter in the book.
My images are different from what you usually find in coloring books. Why? It's because they were made from full color images of my original oil paintings of the Heart. As you see above on the far left that heart was colored by a friend of mine - it's the first one inside the book - and I used her coloring version on the cover. I was blown away by the beautiful image she created!
Here she colored the same heart but with lighter colors around the outside so you see again that pencils color very nicely and completely.
Here is my original oil painting as I painted it. But as you see in the pic at the beginning of my post, even I didn't color the shades of grey version exactly.!You can, but as Coloristas you will be able to do as much as you want with them! Enjoy! And if you like please post pics of your coloring of the hearts on my page on Amazon. I'd love to see them! Just type in my name - Jacqueline Stigman or The Power of the Heart Coloring Book -
Then post your pic in the Customer Reviews area.
In the mean time, Have Fun Coloring!
