The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – July 1, 2019

***

Well, looks like I never got around to posting anything for June, and here it is already July!

I did finally finish these two, just last night.

The first one of the big chicken and little yellow chicks…well it was fun to color, but tedious with all the little bits and pieces. I think I probably used several different color markers and also different colored pencils on this.

I always want to use yellow, but it’s so hard to get it to show up. I like the multicolored chicken though.

The second one is one from a regular kid’s coloring book. I find that the larger pictures are much easier, and fun for me. I used blue and red Crayola crayons on the birds, and a brown one for the bird bath. The flowers are red and blue, with green stems and leaves.

The pages shown are regular size, and then a part of it is enlarged.

I haven’t colored much of anything this month, so I’m showing some pages I’ve done in the past.

The first two I used markers, and the last one of the cats, I used both colored pencils & markers

***

  • Man & Woman with blonde hair, dressed in fancy dress clothes, dancing together
  • Design of flowers and swirlys, done in green, orange & black
  • Lots of kitty cat faces in lots of colors…they are wearing hats, earmuffs, antlers, on their heads, or have scarfs

The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – March 1, 2019

Well, I finally got started on painting this ceramic mug.

I’d gotten it a long time ago from my daughter, I think for my birthday. It came with these markers to use, but they were pretty much dried up, even though the package was new. So, I found this other blank mug to paint, that has little paint pots. I couldn’t find any other food safe markers, and the paints were food safe, it said.

I found out that painting the design is much harder than coloring with pencils or markers in a coloring book. Way harder!

It’s messy, and almost impossible to stay in the lines. So, it’s very slow going. The paint does dry in between sessions, though, so that is good.

Anyway, I’ve got a long time to go before I can bake them to set the colors. So far it’s fun to do, so we’ll see how it is when I’m finished.

I haven’t done anything in my coloring books lately, but here’s what I’ve done so far on the mug.

It’s July already! Hard to believe how fast the months are flying by, isn’t it!

I didn’t post a mid-month June coloring page, because we were on vacation, but I did color some pages. My daughter, grand-son, and I spent time at the kitchen table just coloring away while we talked and had snacks. It is so fun!

Anyway…I asked my grandson if I could post his original drawings and coloring on my blog, and he said sure I could. He’s 8 years old, and a good artist, I think, already. This time he was drawing characters from the video game, “Plants vs Zombies”. Here they are… 🙂

For myself, I finished one I’d started last time…

I made some progress on this red, white, and blue one…

 

…and, did a couple of other ones…

  

***

So, that’s my coloring fun through the month of June. It’s still early in July, and I’m sure I’ll have some more pages done before the month is done.

Wow! Here it is the month of May, already!

It’s time for another entry in the Escapist Coloring Club, hosted by Linda G. Hill. Find out how to join in, by clicking the link above. It’s fun!

Thanks, Linda, for thinking of this fun idea for us to do. 🙂

So, I did finish this lantern that I’d started, and showed you recently. I did it in all markers.

 

***

Then, I started working on this one of vegetables in a basket. It has more details to fill in, but looked pretty interesting. I’m using only colored pencils on this one. To me, it’s harder to use the pencils. I keep expecting the colors to be as bright as the markers, and they are just not. Maybe it’s the kind of pencils I have, or something, but I have to press down so hard to get them to show up, and almost have torn the paper!

I’m trying to do some shading on the vegetables, too. Still got some areas to finish, yet. So far I’ve been 2 days (well, nights) on this page. I only do the coloring for about an hour, because my hand is hurting by then. I still do enjoy the coloring and the books.

Here’s the books I used:

The first one my daughter got me for Christmas, and the second one I’m pretty sure I got at the dollar store.

The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – January 1, 2018

***

I don’t mind saying, I love to color! I do have lots of those coloring books, and spend at least an hour every evening coloring in the designs. After a day of staring at the computer screen, and typing, I’m tired and need to relax a bit. I enjoy seeing the colors come together in a nice color combination, and most times try not to use more than three, possibly four colors on one page. I pretty much use markers, as they are bright. I use colored pencils once in awhile, but seem to have to re-sharpen them way too much. I don’t really worry about getting everything perfect, and that’s not really the point of it. To me, it’s relaxing just to be in the moment and wind down from the day.

Here’s the one I’ve been working on recently. It’s not finished, but I do like the color combinations of it. As you can see, there’s some coloring outside the lines, and a few skips where the marker didn’t quite cover the area, but that’s okay. Nobody’s judging, I’m not entering the picture in any talent contest, and I’m having fun. 🙂

I had this coloring book, I had these Crayolas (left from the Crayola challenge), and I had an idea.

Why not color the pages, then write a little Haiku poem to go with each one!

Sounded good to me, so here’s the first one.
