Here's the second colouring book from talented artist Delyth Angharad (see my review of her first book here) which transports us into a winding world of toadstool houses, delicate flower blossoms and finely decorated snails, alongside a few of Delyth's signature intricate mandalas. Her heavily detailed work is a treat to look at, each illustration thoroughly detailed yet still remaining exquisitely fragile and elegant. The Pocket Garden contains 21 colourable pages including the title page and 'belongs to' page, filled with leafy vines and tropical blooms. Take a look inside!
The book is a handy A5 size, to be taken with you for on-the-spot colouring wherever you go! Waiting room full at the doctors? Get your Pocket Garden out and alleviate the boredom! The pages of the book have a smooth surface and each design is one-sided, so whichever pens you prefer will work fine- I'd recommend fineliners though as some of the illustrations can be quite complex with small spaces.
When researching for this review I was so excited to find that Delyth's stunning works of art can now be bought as tote bags, t-shirs, pillows, and even shower curtains! Take a look at the plethora of products available on her Society6 page.
Here's the page I'm working on at the moment, using the Tombow touch-tip technique to create a blended watercolour effect on the flower petals.
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. You can buy your copy on Amazon, here:
