The Colors of Nature || Lindsay Hopkins

It’s my policy to review as much as possible of what I’m sent, and always to do so if it’s something I’ve requested. This isn’t something I’d normally cover, being a book to colour in, but I asked for it, not quire realising what it was, and I’m not going to make an exception to my own rules.

There isn’t a lot you can say critically about this kind of thing. It is what it is, which is to say: outlines, with a few words, that you can colour in. The text consists of quotations and some basic lore: “Did you know that dahlias represent elegance and dignity?” There are also some very basic drawing hints, which do actually break each of the subjects down to four simple steps if you want to attempt outlines of your own. Colouring hints are also promised although, as this is predominantly an adult colouring book, I think the idea is that you should allow free rein to your imagination.

To be honest, there isn’t a lot for the serious artist here, even though the drawing hints are actually quite good. However, if you think they’d be helpful, you may also like having pre-drawing outlines to practice your colour work on.
