About the Author

Each illustration's focus is a dog or multiple dogs, (of good size, some covering half or more of the page) placed in the foreground of the picture with detailed but simply outlined landscape backgrounds that move off into the distance. The dogs are good sized, some covering half or more of the page.
Each illustration in this book has many details which are simply outlined.( An example individual leaves in the foreground are outlined only, no shadow lines or vein lines, just the outline.) (Eyes and iris's outlined not filled in) I enjoy using colored pencil techniques to create texture in fur, contour in leaves, delicate shadows, etc. and this book is perfect for me.
My Younger grandchildren below the age of 8, get frustrated with this book, they want to color the pictures, however they color the dogs, then want me to finish the backgrounds or just leave it uncolored, the backgrounds have too many details for them to complete the whole picture.
My older grand daughters, 8 and up, that enjoy more detailed work love this book, my grandsons 8 to 12 that enjoy more detailed coloring also like this book but my older grandsons prefer coloring books with other subjects.
1. Pages are made of heavy weight paper, perforated with just one picture on each page, no text ,
2. Images are drawn with and boxed in with darker grey lines then other Dover paint and color books, too dark to just disappear when coloring but will if outlined with a dark color.
I definitely enjoyed coloring this book (using both markers as well as colored pencils). It would also make a great gift for someone who loves to color, who loves dogs, and especially someone who loves BOTH!
