Simply Colour is an 8-weekly publication that is currently on sale in most supermarkets, WH Smith and lots of smaller newsagents, which includes 25 original illustrations from various artists. One of these is Paul Robbins, an independent illustrator from South Wales who's pen-and-ink drawings are featured on greetings cards, mugs, cushions and available to buy as prints from his DrawPaint Etsy store. Paul's highly detailed work is showcased in Simply Colour, some examples of which are included in the slideshow below.
All the illustrations are sorted into 3 themed chapters, which in this issue are 'Into the Wild', 'Bon Voyage' and 'Fantastic Florals'. A larger quantity of themes have been promised for future issues due to the high response the series has had from the colouring public. The designs are consistent with a medium-heavy linework and each page is one sided. The paper is average thickness and has a nice tooth for pencil laydown. Have a look through here:
Here's my completed page! I used Promarkers, and chose the illustration of Venice as a nod to my Italian roots :)
