Coloring Book about Horses
When I was working on the illustrations for this book I wanted to make it suitable for all ages. As I previously mentioned, children have very little fear when it comes to coloring. They grab the brush or pencil and start creating. Adults, on another hand, sometimes hesitate before jumping into to the creative process. So, my book has two kinds of drawings in it. I placed a dozen of farm scenes and horses in the natures in quite realistic style. But another dozen of drawings were created from my childhood memories about Merry-Go-Round carousel. The horses are imaginary; but they do not follow the carousel circle in my book. They are surrounded by hearts. Yes, right in the middle of this coloring book creation about horses, the very same horses didn’t want to be “attached” to the carousel; instead, they wanted to do what they LOVE to do, run happy. So, the heart symbols came into my book as simple as could be. And I am so happy it did. Now I can certainly test the colors on the horse drawings and hearts. I love to work with pencil and dry-on-dry technique with slight watercolor touch:
Horse In The Heart Drawing and Watercolor
The two kinds of drawings for coloring in this book are placed one after another in order to keep a nice entertaining flow such mix of complex and easy. And some of the complex drawings actually derived from my watercolor paintings of the horses. Here is a good example, the horse on the farm:

I’ve met this cute little girl when traveling to the state of Washington. She was a pet horse at the small ranch on Columbia River Gorge. And she became one of my models not only for the watercolor painting but as well for the drawing in this book:

It was so much fun to come back to my memories of traveling and drawing the horses.
Another great example on the subject was a landscape from my other travels, this time to the state of Virginia. A beautiful mountain ranch right in the middle of National Forest got my full attention. This time I first drew the landscape and then colored it with watercolor pencils:

When book was almost finished, I kept thinking how to make it more interesting for my art collectors and co-creators who will color the drawings. And I came up with few more ideas by adding several pages of other activities such Connect The Dots and Help the Horse Find The Barn:

Those little puzzles will keep whole family entertained!
The book is now ready to meet with its co-creators who are not afraid to color, play, and have fun 🙂
