    What beautiful examples! I really like your color combinations!

    And now come up with something nice to use those drawings in (nice lampshade with those acorns and leaves, for example). Nicely done, but not for me (I would probably color outside the lines) 😉

    Nice result, with those felt-tip pens, Els.

    How cool! I also have a number of coloring books and when I'm stressed I like it so much. Just focus your thoughts on which colors look good haha.

    How nice! I also have two coloring books, but I have no patience for them at all.

  6. Mei Qi says:

    Yes, that also seems very relaxing to do!!

  7. I'm actually not a fan of autumn, but I think these coloring pages are very beautiful. Especially the first one with the umbrellas.

  8. Looks very nice! I also tried a coloring book, apparently not for me haha. Although it always looks cool in the end.

  9. I still color sometimes 😉

    But only things that I have drawn myself or on students' sketches.

  10. I don't color enough and when I start a coloring page I don't finish it. Stupid, even though it's a wonderful thing to do!

    How nice of you to do this! I can imagine that it is relaxing, I would like to take up painting again sometimes, but it never happens.

    Nice Els. Nice book for this time of year!??

  13. Yvonne says:

    Yes Nice! I think it's dellicious. Actually, I was hoping that my son also liked coloring, so we could do it together. You have some beautiful creations there.

    You did that very well too! It is here because of the hands that started to cramp, yes you could really see that, muscles even pulled inwards, no longer colored in my books, but I think I will take them with me to Amersfoort in case it rains too hard and I'm inside, hahahaha

    To alternate with crocheting, if necessary. Stabilo, yes, those are really great markers! I have been working with them for a few years now. And I often say to others what you do, only use 3 or 4 colors, or 1 type, only the greens, or blues, or, or, or... blah... People are very grateful to me, so I often have conversations in the stores also have people who can't choose or tell me they don't know how to start, hahaha

    Do you also know the rainbow technique? The fact that you use 7 colors and always use them in the same order, line by line or layer by layer, I don't know how to say this... You can find those examples with me, I will type your color into the search function 😉

    What a fun coloring book! And what a beautiful thing you have made of it. Very appropriate autumn time, but luckily we still have a beautiful late summer.

I would really appreciate a response to this article :)
