I have read somewhere that colors and coloring has a therapeutic effect on one person, especially when stressed. Why did I forget that?! I love being in the Art Class in Highschool and I think its about time to dig the little fine artist in me. Well, I have been doing arts through crafting and with helping with my schoolboy's projects though, but it seems not much of a help. Maybe because I find it more of an 'obligation' and not something I really enjoyed doing.
I suddenly felt this need to have an outlet, somewhere to "release" my tension from my everyday life. I accidentally found this IG page @Colormedoodle through links which I browsed. I used to buy, (okay hoard! :P) coloring books for my son Q but I want to reserve the uncolored pages for Z perhaps when its his turn to study coloring. I think what they call Adult Coloring book has been around for quite some time already. But I have not seen yet among my circle of friends and aquaintances someone who do this activity. I got interested and I think I should give it a try. Besides, I found the 10 sheets from the site affordable at a price of P250.00 with an additional P50.00 for shipping. I believe, some coloring books for adults usually found in bookstores cost thousands of bucks. After a few inquiry with Mr. Mark Dean Lim, the owner and artist behind Color Me Doodle, I finally ordered my 1st Adult Coloring Book. When it arrived the following day I deposited my payment, Oh boy! I was ecstatic!
I put out all my coloring materials available in my stash. I got so overwhelmed at first that I cant decide what medium to use for the plates. Some artists use colored pens, pencils and watercolor. I got intrigued with the Watercolor Pencils, which according to some is a great buy. So I bought one set of 36 for myself. It was challenging at first so I made use a mixed media for my 1st plate.
I worked with watercolor pencils with my second. I actually switched brand with this plate. I found the colors more vibrant and easy to apply and blend.
With the 3rd piece still from the Color Me Doodle Vol. 2 collection, I braved the colored pens. Why braved? Because colored pens are harder to apply because they are highly pigmented and cannot be erased once stroked or colored to paper.
"Are you, are you coming to the tree?" Finished this Plate of the day with the song "Hanging Tree" from the movie The Hunger Games The Mockingjay part 1 playing in my head over and over.
