About 71 percent of the Earth's surface is water-covered and the oceans hold about 96.5 percent of all Earth's water. Scientists are exploring, photographing and researching the ocean and all forms of life in water. This makes a peek into the rich life of the sea an astounding discovery of colors, new sea-life, and amazing wonders, never seen before, using 21st Century technology for armchair visitors to explore the ocean depths from the comfort of their living rooms!
The artist has been sketching, coloring, drawing in sketchbooks since age five. After completing 14 coloring books over the last two years, she was looking for another topic to draw lovely images for her next effort. After visiting her son-in-law (a Wounded Warrior, Hon. Ret., Marine) in California, she became fascinated with his hobby of aquariums where he was raising coral, tropical fish, and other amazing ocean life in microcosmic environments. After seeing the beautiful sea-life in his living room, the artist started looking for images to draw for a coloring book. Hence, the 50+ images coloring book - just for BIG KIDS at heart. These designs were created from the artist's hand-drawn original inspired sketches resulting in graphically complimentary black and white spaces with loads of potential for adding color.
Coloring books will never lose their appeal - whether you are a pre-kindergarten toddler to the mature adult who is looking for something simple to play with for a solitary pursuit that provides artistic pleasure. This coloring book has the intensity of design in the mandalas, but also the simplicity of simple doodles or complicated illustrations and inspired art that allow the reader (and budding artist) to pick and chose their favorite design, and then use colored pencils, markers, acrylics, or even crayons to add their own brilliant color combinations.
Coloring can be cathartic for those needing something that doesn't take a lot of analysis or thought, while allowing them to pick and chose 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, go into your own personal Zen moment, use your hands in a creative way, or to use for a craft or art project. Once the designs are colored - give the books as gifts, use pages as scrapbook background art, or cut out the designs and use in multi-media art. The possibilities are endless!
