About the Colouring In Page


This colouring in page is a free download for you to print out and colour in

It is taken from a drawing that I, Mandy, did in the late 90's

It was drawn using Faber Castel and Derwent pencils on a black leathercraft paper

Here are the colours that I used in the original, next to the example of the page for you to print out and colour in


and here is a larger version of the drawing - so that you can put it on your screen, have a closer look and use it like a jigsaw puzzle/colour by numbers if you want to



The Meaning Behind the Drawing

This drawing is about beginning a big project and sowing the seeds for your future

its about starting off small and growing

they are happy in their tasks

and you can see the rewards to come in the great big plants they are next to

It partners with a drawing about the end stages of building something -called Coming Into Shore

About the Artist

Hi - I'm Mandy and I help people expand thier creativity and discover a real freedom,joy and originality in their work

by branching out into easy abstract markmaking art

I shall explain

For 30 years, as a career artist, I spent every day creating art that has meaning - tells a story - says something

and - I LOVED IT

but I always deep down wanted to be free and loose

Everything that I drew had a certain shape, a certain line

it had portent and meaning

which is great

but its also restrictive - and has boundaries

If you dont get that line right ... then it looks wrong

So when I finally broke through - and discovered the freedom in just painting for paintings sake

by just using simple spashes of colour and markmaking patterns

I can honestly say I have never enjoyed being an artist more

There is so much liberation in just letting the paint flow

and looking at the colours blend

and not having to SAY something

There is a freedom in abstraction and patterning

a relaxation and a letting go with the chaos of watercolour


its all you

instead of looking at wether your tree looks like a tree

you are looking at your work thinking about the balance of shapes and colour

this process makes you think about the fundamentals of a painting

and not the surface story

this makes you a MUCH better artist

Its easy

and free

so check it out and see what you think
