Colour Therapy by Elizabeth James
Today I am reviewing a gorgeous book called Colour Therapy by Elizabeth James. This book was gifted to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
This book is the latest in Elizabeth James' series of Really Relaxing Colouring Books - Book 10 - and features 30 pages of beautiful designs, both intricate and easy for whatever you're in the mood for. I particularly love the Victorian-style tile patterns; I'm a sucker for symmetry and love anything vintage!
As I received a PDF copy I cannot comment on the quality of paper used, but I can tell you that each design is single sided (nothing printed on the back) so if you wanted to use Sharpies or alcohol-based pens, you don't have to worry about them bleeding through and messing up the illustration behind.
Line thicknesses on the designs vary from thin to very thick. Personally I prefer thin, delicate designs but a variety of both is always good in a colouring book.
I would recommend this book to anyone, a beginner or a seasoned colourist, as the designs are so diverse. There's Mandalas, tiles, geometric patterns, nature, and the pictures can be quite detailed so it's going to last you a while- great value for money at just £3.95.
Here are some pages that I coloured, using my triplus fineliners, twistables and assorted gel pens. Hope you like them!
