Weekend project

Monday, October 05, 2015

I have been wanting to do one of these colour by the numbers for ages. Just one. I know all these colouring in books for adults are all the rage right now, and I see so many different ones in bookshops and art shops - the secret garden, the patterns, etc. - but I wonder if anyone ever finishes a volume from start to finish. The colouring by the number is tiny, so my neck is definitely feeling the strain at the moment. It's not as easy as it looks, and while you are focusing on not messing it up on that tiny corner, you sometimes forget to see the big picture of what it is you're painting. Is that grey a bit of the fur, the rocks, or the river? Then at the end of a session you sit back and see how much progress you had made - and allow a sigh of contentment. It's not yet finished, but soon! Then it will be admired before going onto another project.
