tree (free adult coloring page)

free-adult-coloring-page-tree-001

This tree was a whimsical drawing that originally wasn’t going to be an adult coloring page – I was just fooling around, and started drawing roots like hair. When I was done the roots I decided to make it an adult coloring page after all, and filled in the ground with stones, and the sky with windy swirls.

snow people (free adult coloring page)

free-adult-coloring-page-christmas-snowman-001

I drew this page several weeks ago when I first started drawing adult coloring pages. It’s probably the most like children’s coloring pages of any of the drawings that I’ve done so far. I wanted to draw a winter scene, and it came out very cartoonish.

winter plants (free adult coloring page)

free-adult-coloring-christmas-plants-001

When I first started creating adult coloring pages earlier this fall, I knew I wanted to draw some pages especially for Christmas and the holiday season which was fast approaching. I was looking at a lot of Margaret Berg illustrations at the time, and today’s free adult coloring page was inspired by Berg’s Christmas illustrations, like the ones below.

sun flower (free adult coloring page)

free-adult-coloring-page-sun-001

It’s a sun. It’s a flower. It’s a sunflower. It’s all of the above.

This drawing was inspired by this doodle (shown below from my Instagram feed) that I did in one of my art journals. It’s one of my favourite doodles, and I knew right away that I wanted to make an adult coloring page of the same image. I’m really happy with the way it turned out.

I’ve been fascinated by sun and moon images for a long time, and even have a whole Pinterest board devoted to the subject. I keep going back to look at those images for future inspiration.

christmas cookies (free adult coloring page)

free-adult-coloring-page-christmas-cookies-001

This drawing was inspired by my niece, who loves to bake Christmas cookies. Every year she makes shortbread cookies in Christmas shapes and decorates them with icing, and we call them “Santa cookies” because the kids used to put them out for Santa on Christmas Eve.

Santa cookies are one of my favourite parts of Christmas.

mittens (free adult coloring page)

free-adult-coloring-page-christmas-mittens-001

I’ve drawn a lot of adult coloring pages that are quite detailed, but I for this one I wanted to do something a little simpler, not in my usual style. I thought it would be fun to colour a bunch of different mittens.

feathers (free adult coloring page)

free-adult-coloring-page-feathers-001

The drawing for this adult coloring page was based on a doodle I did in one of my art journals. You can see the original drawing, below, from my Instagram feed.

That particular art journal, I had pasted scraps of magazine pages into, to inspire me when I was sketching. So the blue is actually a collaged magazine page that I drew over. I find it’s a great technique when you’re intimidated by a blank page. If there’s already something there, you’re less afraid to make another mark…  and then another one…

mistletoe (free adult coloring page)

free-adult-coloring-page-christmas-mistletoe-001

This is another drawing that was inspired by illustrator Margaret Berg. I love her stuff so much.

When I was younger my parents used to put up a mistletoe ornament every year, in kitchen doorway, and Dad liked to kiss women under it. This year when Mom was putting up the Christmas decorations she was going to skip the mistletoe, and I asked her if we could put it up after all. I don’t know who will kiss under it, but I like seeing it there.

poinsettia (free adult coloring page)

free-adult-coloring-page-poinsettia-001

This hand-drawn adult coloring page started out as a sketch in one of my small travel sketchbooks (below). I was just fooling around, and really liked how the hatch marks made the poinsettia leaves really pop.

I did a cleaner version in black ballpoint ink for the free coloring page. I uploaded a picture of the drawing in progress to Instagram (below), and decided I liked how the one flower looked without the hatching, so I didn’t entirely fill in the second flower.
