It’s inspired by this magnificient oil painting by Paul Cezanne, painted in 1886 and exposed at the Brooklyn museum in New York. It reprensents a French village named Gardanne (in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur)
20 years ago, I did a watercolor inspired by this masterpiece, that I had accidentally discovered in a library :
And so, few days ago, I managed to make a coloring with this old watercolor I did in my youth. Here are the main steps of my work :
As I took pictures of my drawing at each steps, you can chose the version you want ! Just click on the picture you prefer, to download for free the file and print it.
We are pleased to welcome to the site a new partner artist, this is Cathy M.
Her specialty? Zen Tangle! This is a design technique based on doodling, pretty abstract at first sight. But Cathy adds his personal touch by including messages, drawings … and the result is just unique!
If you understand French, this is an interview of Cathy for the website BeauxArts.fr.
With Cathy’s agreement, we adapted his works at coloring, passing the 100% Black & White, and increasing the contrast.
“Coloring for Grown-ups: The Adult Activity Book” by Ryan Hunter & Taige Jensen is for sure the most original coloring book for adults ….
Very far from the typical coloring books (Zen, Anti-stress, animals, flowers …) these drawing represent some situations of the REAL life.
The topics that you could find in the works of Ryan Hunter & Taige Jensen are : unemployment, sexual problemes, extremism, dependencies, etc … Very funny isn’t it ?
But it’s up to you to chose the colors … if you think the situation is funny or sad …
You will even color “magical coloring pages”, like in the example below :
It’s also a very good and original gift idea ! For adults for sure… Or people who enter in the adult age, to prepare themseleves to all the “joys” they will certain find in their future years !
“It’s the type of coloring book you might leave on a coffee table for a hungover house guest to flip through after waking up from a night of questionable decision-making. You might scribble in it during your woefully short lunch break, or tear out a page and leave it as a surprise on the refrigerator of your least-hated friend. It’s for entertaining yourself while you wait for an overpaid medical professional to administer your basic human right to health care, or for distracting yourself within the confines of even the filthiest public restroom.”
