Details of the book:
-Beautiful glossy colored covers
-At the front, 16 full color pages of the artist's story, how she works, and colored examples, as well as tips and tricks for this type of coloring
-Black and white image on the front of each page
-Quotes on the back of each page with a few lines for notes/journaling. (I like to write what mediums I used so I can remember later).
-32 hand illustrated designs, on much better quality paper than your standard coloring books (almost like a card stock).
-I love to color on a clipboard, so I was thrilled that the pages are VERY perforated and easy to remove!
Personally, I get tired of so many of the coloring books out there that look so computer generated, and they all look alike. This book is a refreshing change of style and quality!
"Chalk-Style Botanicals" contains 32 full size coloring pictures and 16 pages of introductory material. The insides of the front and back covers are full printed - one with a note from the author, the other with colored examples of pages from the book. It measures 10 inches square and is glue bound into a matte finish cover with laminated accents. Featuring hand drawn images on black backgrounds, this book is appropriate for adult colorists on all skill levels.
The paper in this book is bright white and fairly heavy. All pages are single sided and fully perforated. All mediums are okay to use, but keep in mind that watercolors and markers may have some bleedthrough. As always, be sure to place several sheets of blotter paper under your current picture to avoid any issues.
As the title states, "Chalk-Style Botanicals" features images of plants and flowers in a chalkboard style format. You'll also find vases, planters, inspirational quotes, and a few mandala based pages scattered throughout. All of the images are reverse printed with a textured black background and the backside of each is finished with a quote and some blank lines for you to sign your picture and add a date. The artwork is hand drawn, so the images aren't picture perfect the way they would be in a computer generated book. Line weight and thickness does vary quite a bit within each picture. This helps add to the chalkboard effect and doesn't detract from the quality in the least. Most of the pages contain one large image, but there are a few that are made up of lots of smaller elements. Detail level is fairly consistent throughout and picture completion time should run from 2-8 hours(may be slightly different for each individual). Overall, it's a beautifully made product that offers a unique spin on chalkboard art. It would be best suited for artists who enjoy coloring whimsically styled imagery.
