A different type of coloring book, "S M Coloring and Shading Books" and "Nature's Patterns and Designs Coloring Books" are grayscale coloring books that can be as challenging or as simple to color as you wish. The pictures are sketch-like and intentionally printed lighter, so that you can color over the gray. (Read below for more details.)

Visit our Facebook page "S M Coloring and Shading Books" for examples, ideas, techniques and more.

In the "Nature's Patterns and Designs Coloring Books" series, there are pictures of multiple subjects that can each be colored a bit differently to show the variety of that subject. There are also close-ups in some of the books to color as if you were studying the subject.

For a more challenging experience, use the gray shading in the picture as a guide to work on shading techniques. We like to color over or outline the darker areas with one or a few shades of a color, then color the lighter areas with a contrasting or lighter shade.

For a simple coloring experience just color the picture, the gray may show through depending on what you are coloring with and your technique, this will give some depth to the picture. You can always outline in black if you prefer that look.

Do you find rocks interesting? All those different patterns and colors. Nature's Patterns and Designs Coloring Books, Volume 1: Rocks, contains 30 pictures of rocks both in a group and up close to color. (A little over half are close up pictures.) Some of the rocks included in this volume are Bindi Agate, Atlantisite, Onyx, Scenic Jasper and more. The names are included to get you started.

Nature provides some interesting patterns and designs, why not color them? Nature's Patterns and Designs Coloring Books are a bit more challenging then other coloring books, the pictures are taken right from nature including rocks, leaves, shells, animals, wood and more. Color the interesting patterns and designs however you want, abstract or realistic. Each book contains 30 pictures and the name of each, (except Volume 9: Tree Rings and Wood Grain),so if you wish, you can research the right colors to get you started.

Pull out your pastel pencils, colored pencils, crayons, markers or whatever you like and start coloring. (Some techniques may bleed through the paper so put extra paper in between if needed.)

The pages are one-sided to enable you to take a picture out if needed for technique, framing, or a gift and not miss out on coloring the other side or have it bleed through.
