The Green Lady's Colouring Book is a small book that packs a lot of punch. With 8 beautiful illustrations, you can really dedicate your time to this book without feeling overwhelmed. Each design is a homage to everything folk & celtic, so if you're a Festival-loving colourist this is definitely the book for you! You'll find goddesses, witches, even Stonehenge itself within the pages. There's exquisitely intricate Henna patterns for you to get your fineliners into. I only wish there were more pages as I absolutely love the ones that Gwen has included.
The book is spiral bound which I love, as it can get annoying having to hold a book open with one hand whilst you colour with the other. The paper used is the same or maybe slightly thicker than normal printer paper, so markers may bleed through- my fineliners did slightly. It doesn't matter though, as each design is one-sided so you can Sharpie away to your heart's content! You don't even need to put a sheet of paper under to protect the next page, just find something to lean on and spiral the rest of the pages out of the way. Take a look at this witch I finished this morning. I used Faber-Castell pencils first, then highlighted parts with fineliners to create depth.
