Katherine’s Experience With Adult Coloring
How long did it take you to color this page?
I spaced it out over several days. I would color here and there when I needed a break from what I was doing. Sometimes I only spent a few minutes on it; other times I could color for a half hour or more.
What effect did your coloring session(s) have on you?
It gave me a nice mental break from whatever I was working on at the moment. It helped relax me and it made me feel more calm and focused when I had to get back to work.
What came to mind as you colored this page?
I did contemplate what the possible symbolism was in the picture and how it related to the words of the song Amazing Grace, and it was interesting to think about. However, I also enjoyed just doing something “mindless” to relax.
Any rhyme or reason behind your color choices?
My color choices are a mix between naturalism and whimsical. I chose to color the tree brown and the leaves green, but the picture also included hearts and medallions, and various flowers, so I decided to have some fun with those. I tried to maintain some level of consistency for a coherent, symmetrical look. For instance, I colored certain flowers blue throughout the picture, but I also didn’t constrain myself to a specific standard.
