Coloring Ocean Mandalas by Wendy Piersall {Review & Giveaway}

DSCN5012

Years ago, I used to live on the Ocean with my family. It was a beautifully breathtaking sight that I never grew tired of gazing upon. From that point on, my adoration of the vast ocean and the plethora of living creatures beneath it’s surface continued to draw me in. When I heard Wendy Piersall one of my favorite coloring book illustrations was releasing a coloring book with the ocean as the theme I knew I had to get my hands on it.

The thirty illustrations within this coloring book are whimsical, fantastical, and awe inspiring. I believe that those that also love the ocean are sure to be quite as taken with this offering as myself. There’s a lighthouse, jellyfish, seahorses, a pair of narwhals, majestic boats, darling mermaids, and much more! Illustrations range in very intricate to designs filled with a bit less detail.56c8cf0f-32bb-4c2a-91c5-6a2722a3590e

I enjoy coloring the designs in this book with my set of Prisma Premier colored pencils. I think the illustrations really pop if you can blend your colors and add a bit of shading and lightening. Fine point markers or pens would work as well. This thickness of the pages has a good weight but if using ink, I would suggest placing a thin piece of cardboard or a clipboard on the backside to prevent any sorta ink bleeding.The size of this coloring book is thin enough to place in a medium to large purse, tote, or other bag with art mediums of ones choices!

I’m very happy with Wendy’s new book! When having a rough day or needing to re-set my brain so to speak, I pull out a pack of pencils and a coloring book. There’s just something so relaxing and inspiring to just slow down, create, and rest that does wonders for ones self.97c8934e-c967-4d0a-8147-28f8eb4d4b00
