Flower Patterns is a beautifully illustrated book by Pamela Duarte, a successful artist who has previously designed Barbie books for Mattel! Pamela has now forayed into the colouring book world with two self-published books; Flower Mandalas and the one I'm reviewing today.
Her intentions for this book was to create a variety of patterns that range from complex to simple, to allow anyone at any level of colouring to create some exquisite art.
The book is quite substantial with 50 different designs to colour as you wish, each one handily printed on one side of paper.
The paper quality is good, none of my Triplus or other felt tips bled through and each page is crisp and white. I love the assortment of designs, some mandalas, some Paisley style, some are even like a groovy 70s wallpaper :) If you like colouring flowers of all different kinds I'd certainly recommend this book. Here are my finished pages. I used my new Spectrum Noir and Promarkers to practice shading, I think they turned out pretty good! Do remember to put a sheet or 2 of scrap paper between your pages when using alcohol markers.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. You can find it on Amazon here:
