Hey folks! How do you feel about adult coloring? Already infected with coloring craze? Well I am! I see some very nice doodle drawings all over the internet but actually I end up feeling kinda frustrated filling those tiny never ending pieces with colors. So I decided to tweak some vintage prints available at Getty and came up with my own coloring pages appealing my taste. There is something very relaxing, calm and magical about these drawings made by French artist Jean-Baptiste Pillement. And believe me or not, they date back to 18th century! Just have a look.
What I like about them most is that you can easily finish one piece in less than hour. That way you can actually receive that wonderful feeling of accomplishment without pushing yourself too much (I mean we already have plenty of other difficult tasks in our lives don’t we?)
I made these coloring pages available as .pdf files ready to print as A4 sheets. They may look too light on your screen, but they come up perfect once printed. Believe me, I tried it several times with different adjustments and it becomes too shadowy very easily.
I used markers and pencils for coloring but there are really no limits. I’ve been also thinking about getting a set of watercolor pens (just affiliate link with something like this). Maybe some of you already use them and could share your opinion if it’s any good?
I think smaller pieces would also look very nice as postcards, notebook covers etc. (At least I would be more than happy to receive one of them).
To download coloring pages for free I would like to invite you to subscribe to my newsletter. I will write you no more than twice a week informing about new diy craft projects, special offers (like 50% off my Etsy store’s digital goods) and other great stuff. You will also get a password to enter secret page to get all the site’s freebies in one place! Nice, huh? So what are you waiting for?
If you like the style of these coloring pages I have additional premium pack at PolkaCraftsShop with series of “Tent” drawings, also created by the same artist. Check it out by clicking picture below.
So, what do you think? As usual, I’m eager to see what you came up with so please share in comments section or Instagram using #polkacrafts!
