Adult colouring in books seem to be a huge rage at the moment. There are only a few stores you can walk into these days that don’t sell adult colouring books…Like an electronics store maybe.
Anyway, I confess I got into it too. I used to love colouring in when I was younger, I found it calming and almost meditative watching a page become full of colours. So I dug out my old case of Derwent pencils and bought a colouring book called Zen Colouring Patterns: Advanced Art Therapy.
I do enjoy it, there’s some lovely flowing patterns, some intricate ones which take a crap load of concentrating, but I do’t mind it, it does relax the mind somewhat, or at least distracts me from the craziness of everything else going on my head!
I’ve only completed a few pages so far, my hand gets quite cramped after a while so I’m only doing it in short bursts, but here are some pictures.
Have you tried any colouring in books for adults? What do you think?
