April Coloring Challenge – Our picks of the bunch!
We had a variety of styles for our floral coloring page last month, from watercolor to gouache you shared some fantastic artwork with us! A big thank you to all those that downloaded our floral bouquet coloring page and shared their entries, some of our favorite pages, along with our winner, are showcased below.
This page was colored using Prismacolor pencils and Estella Sepeda Rains used them to great effect!
We love the boldness of the vase and the shading on the leaves and petals. Lovely work!
Gabrielle M Carlucci has used pearlescent watercolors on her floral coloring page. These watercolors give a shiny metallic effect and can be particularly effective on a dark background.
The texture that watercolor gives is wonderful and we really like the swirling shadow Gabrielle has added to the vase to give the design extra depth.
Fade n Shade
Grams Lady on Instagram consistently produces great coloring pages that she shares with us each month.
In this floral bouquet we have great color balance and some lovely faded shading on those pink flower petals. Nice work on adding to the design with those extra fallen flower petals!
This is a bouquet with bling!
There is a freshness in this bouquet, provided by the bright colors that have been used in the flowers, from Rita Chmielewski (shared by Rhonda C Wise on Facebook).
Those stick on gems, evenly spread around the page, are a great touch too, this is a bouquet with bling!
Gouache paint is like a watercolor except it provides an opaque finish and bolder colors. In this coloring page Rosemarie Tesky Carlucci has treated us to a gouache rendition of our floral bouquet.
It is great to see different types of media being used on our coloring pages, thanks for sharing Rosemarie!
Cindy Pasqualini has produced a fantastic coloring page by making subtle additions to the flowers, like those beautiful drooping stamens.
Those petals zing with color and the extra depth provided by the shading on those leaves and flowers is fantastic!
Our Pick of the Blooms!
We had a lot of coloring entries this month with some real quality and variety in the style of coloring. Everyone will have their favorite entries for the month, but for me the floral coloring page that deserved to be announced our pick of the bunch was this one by Celia Fonsalia.
Not only did Celia skilfully add depth to her page using great shading techniques, but she also turned this simple coloring page into a piece of art by adding that fantastic wooden table and placemat. Those fallen leaves just add that extra little touch to make you feel like you could almost lean forward and smell the scent of those flowers through your screen! Great realism and superb coloring! Thank you for sharing Celia!
Join the fun!
