About this title
This book is full of delightful, hand-drawn depictions of Buddha or images and designs related to the Buddist following. You will find intermediate to complicated images in this coloring book, including heavy lined drawings with simple shapes and designs and more fine-art styles with varied line weights (thin to medium). The light and dark line illustrations with >50+ coloring pages that will keep you busy for weeks or months! These images are hand-drawn, so the lines are organic and feel like artist’s natural sketches versus software engineered and mechanically perfect illustrations. This book also includes bonus coloring pages from the artist's other coloring books.
The artist, Dawn D. Boyer, Ph.D., has produced a compilation of delightful illustrations in this coloring book for you to color, shade, and add your own doodles and designs in the ‘eye’ and the background. The artist has also completed some basic research to provide a little background about the original ‘Buddha,’ information about how the Buddha has been depicted throughout history in pictures and statuary. The author/artist has also provided beautiful quotes attributed to Buddha on opposite pages of the illustrations.
Details about the book:
** Non-perforated pages (you can use a craft knife or razor to remove them from the binding)
** Glue-bound spine
** Single-Pages – all the illustrations are on the right hand side on single-sided pages so you don't have to worry about your 'wetter' media ruining any images on the other side (but do use blotter sheets or cardboard between pages when using markers or watercolors).
** Pages are 8.5” x 11” with a half-inch margin, allowing larger (approximately) 7.5”x9.0” images to color
** The first few pages of pre-views show sample drawings in the book and should be available on Amazon’s “Look Between the Covers” function
** Paper weight is the thickness of standard paper-back books; some media may bleed through (test first, back with cardboard or plastic!)
What can you do with the book once you have finished? Once the designs in this book are colored – give the books as gifts, use pages as scrapbook background art, create greeting cards, or use the designs and use in multi-media art. Frame them and hang them in the office, classroom, or at home where the designs can continue to inspire friends, family, and co-workers. The possibilities are endless!
Coloring can be cathartic for those needing something that doesn't take a lot of analysis or thought, while allowing them to pick and choose their personal colors to create an artistic masterpiece. The pages of delightful and imaginative illustrations of fairy abodes allows you to relax while you wile away the hours or the day and find peace in your own mind.
How can BIG KIDS (regardless of chronological age) use this coloring book? Whether the co-artist uses crayon, marker, or colored pencil, or paints – or a combination – the beautiful results can be used to pass the time, keep your mind still, and go into a personal Zen moment in a creative way. Once the designs are colored – give the books as gifts or as scrapbook background art. Possibilities are endless!

This is used to her advantage in creating imaginative illustrations of the delightful fairy houses and fairy doors.
