Sensational Succulents: An adult coloring book of amazing shapes and magical patterns is a collaboration between myself and illustrator Laura Serra. Below you’ll find photos, taken by me, on which Laura based the book’s line drawings. Use the photos to help you choose colors, or feel free to let your imagination improve on nature. When you’ve colored a page you’re proud of, sign it, scan it, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll include it in our online gallery!
Unfamiliar with adult coloring books? This stress-reducing activity is similar to doing puzzles, but with stronger aesthetic and creative rewards. Give it a try! Here’s a sample page you’re welcome to print and play with:
I used colored pencils, but I didn’t refer to the photo (farther down this page) to determine my color choices.
In my 4-minute YouTube video, “The Easy Way to Paint Watercolors,” I used this photo (above) along with the corresponding line drawing from the book to create this painting ~
Below are the rest of the photos on which the book’s images are based. Have fun!
