I’ve mostly been working on coloring these birds the past few days. All of the pages are done with markers.

  • Little gold and silver birds at a hanging nest in the trees. There are blue gourds used as nests hanging there, too.
  • A couple of black and tan birds with red head feathers sitting in a tree.
  • Two orange/blue/green parrot like birds sitting in a tree.

The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – August 1, 2019

I would say I’m a fan of coloring books, and always have been.

When I was a kid, I was always coloring, then later on I’d color in books my kids had, and now they have coloring books for grown-ups. They are all fun and have interesting designs and pictures.

I do have a lot of them … whole drawers full of them, and can’t resist getting more whenever I see one. Some I get from the stores that sell them, and some I get from yard sales.

I don’t limit myself to the so called ‘adult’ type coloring books, either. I still like the simple children’s type of coloring books, too. Sometimes I get tired of the teeny tiny designs in the current fad, and just want a larger area to color in, and maybe add my own shadings and designs within the larger parts.

I use regular crayons, colored pencils, and markers to fill in the spaces, depending on how I want it to look. All in all, it’s a fun hobby, and also relaxing.

Here’s a few pages I’ve colored in the past:

Time for the August update on the Escapist Coloring Club, hosted by Linda G. Hill.

Thanks, Linda, for giving us a place to showcase our pages!

I haven’t done much coloring lately, and haven’t finished a couple I showed earlier in June or July. But, I did do this one the past few days, plus a little doodle in a small spiral book, just for fun.

On these, I am still using the twist up colored pencils, and I still like them a lot. I’d been using the Crayola brand, and I also got some cheaper brand, and you know what? The cheaper ones color good, but they break off too easy, or won’t twist up like they should. I’ll probably just stick to the ‘good’ brand from now on.

 

And, this one I started a couple of nights ago from another dollar store book.
