Sometimes coloring progresses so much more slowly than you expect. One of my most reliable coloring times each day is as my husband and I watch our daily episode of our show of the moment on Netflix. Over the years we've watched quite a few TV series this way, starting at episode one and day [...]

Breathe Wide Tipped – Part 2 + Thinky Thoughts

(A few thinky thoughts before the coloring update.) On January 1st, musician Brian Eno released his ambient music album Reflection and his companion generative music app with the same name. As I type this, I'm streaming the album track on Amazon Music, listening to the 54 minute long evolving piece of music and reflecting on [...]

Out of all of my books and all of the drawings in each book, do you ever wonder how I choose which drawing to color next? So do I, lol. There's not a lot of thought or logic to it. Some days a particular title strikes me as being one that really matches my mood. [...]

Slow Coloring Wow – Day 2

You can tell Halloween is close by the little touches of Jack O'Lantern orange and mysterious black that keep popping up in my recent colorings. There's still a lot of coloring ahead on this one - and perhaps even additional colors. Here's a slide show with my step by step slow coloring progress: [...]

October Bouquet – Finishing Up

Today's slide show is a lot like one of those "spot the difference" games. Each picture shows a bit more progress with one of many gray shades. These colors are inspired by childhood memories of going trick or treating in brightly colored costumes when the outdoors was all dark and shadowy. Here's a slide show [...]

October Bouquet – Day 1

My coloring moods tend to jump around. One day I might really be into sophisticated and artsy coloring and then the next day it's all about recapturing a sense of childlike coloring freedom. As an adult colorist, you get to decide how you want to color and there's no pressure to be consistent in your approach. [...]

Another Sunset? (Finishing Up)

2017-05-08T11:51:56-04:00Categories: Angie's Blog|Tags: , , , , |

One nice thing about coloring with broad color themes like sunsets, Autumn leaves, beach colors, fireworks or Spring is that those ideas can be interpreted in so many different ways. This pale yellow shade is a rather unusual for in my sunset colorings. I would normally consider that shade much more of a daybreak color, [...]

I know that I'm going to eventually come back and recycle yesterday's color scheme - but not today. New color horizons are calling. I've got no plan except "different than yesterday". I guess my spirit of adventure is running strong today. Oh, that's kind of a fun and unusual start. I like that light aqua [...]
