Big Kids Coloring Book : More Advanced Mandalas: (Double-Sided Pages for Crayons and Color Pencils)
Based on previous suggestions and ideas from fans, this book has been UPDATED with NEW illustrations that fill the page(s) of this book, have cleaner lines and designs, and are even more challenging for colorists.
While the title of the book implies 'mandalas' which are normally circular or perfect square, the majority of the 'mandalas' in this book are rectangular to fill the book pages.
Coloring books will never lose their appeal - whether you are a pre-kindergarten toddler to the mature adult who is looking for something simple to play with for a solitary pursuit that provides artistic pleasure. This coloring book has the intensity of design in the mandalas that allow the reader (and budding artist) to pick and chose their favorite design, and then use colored pencils, markers, acrylics, or even crayons to add their own brilliant color combinations.
Coloring can be cathartic for those needing something that doesn't take a lot of analysis or thought, while allowing them to pick and chose their personal colors to create an artistic masterpiece. The page of mandalas (rectangular kaleidoscopic images) allows relaxation while you wile away the hours or the day in your own mind. There are enough coloring pages (50+) to provide months of coloring entertainment!
There is no judgment here. Have fun. Use the baseline designs and sketches to play and have fun. If there are blank spaces, along the borders or inside the design, add your own lines and patterns.
