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 [...]

(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. [...]

Another Sunset? (Finishing Up)

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 really thought that I was headed for an all blue coloring this time. But sure enough, along comes that moment where the first of the sunset colors sneak in. I've seen so many people color beautiful monochromatic colorings and wish that single color family picture came more easily to me. But if elegant single [...]

Cool Tones Shading – Day 2

I've got lots of minor flaws in my coloring today, but that's a good reminder of what's most important. It doesn't matter if a bit of laser printer ink flakes off my cardstock as my hand rubs on the paper surface. It doesn't matter if I've actually got two side by side shapes where the [...]

Today I'm coloring from my newest book, Breathe For Crayons And Wide Tipped Markers. It's too soon to be sure whether or not I'm now hooked on shading - but all signs point to "quite possibly". One of the things that's coming with a bit more shading experience is that it stops being a big [...]
