Flora & Fauna contains 48 nature-themed illustrations which are all hand drawn in pen & ink, so you get those lovely wobbly, imperfect lines that are so much better than pristine digital art. Inside the pages you will find a plethora of animals including a flamingo, fox, deer, butterfly, fish, birds and much more. There's also lots of leaves, flowers and plant life to colour, all in Hilary's detailed pattern style. In fact, there is so much to colour in this book that you really are getting your money's worth!
Take a look through the book in this video flip-through below:
It is A4 in size with a glossy card cover and has each illustration printed on one side. The linework is a medium thickness and the level of detail varies from super intricate to wide open spaces, so there's something for every colourist's preference. All designs are centred on the page and don't run into the middle or off the edge. The book is flexible and allows a degree of flattening in the spine for ease of colouring.
Here is my finished page, which I coloured with Spectrum Noir and Sharpies.
