The Art of Mindfulness: Happy and Energized Colouring – A Review

The Art of Mindfulness: Happy and Energized Colouring is published and was very kindly sent to me for review by Michael O’Mara Books. This is probably my favourite book in the series and it contains such a wide variety of images. This one contains a number of underwater themed images which are really lovely and in addition to these there are quite a lot of other natural images of animals, birds, plants, flowers and leaves. There are also some really quirky images of lamps, lanterns, hands and peace signs and this one doesn’t contain a large number of patterned images. This is the most nature-inspired book in the series which is why it’s my personal favourite because I find that natural images are the best for calming and soothing the symptoms of mental illness. This books contains a variety of line thicknesses but mostly it’s medium to thin and this would suit most colourers. It does contain intricate and detailed images but they’re not intimidating or teeny-tiny and they’re a great difficulty level for practising mindfulness and really focusing on what you’re colouring at the time. If you’re new to colouring and aren’t sure what you’d like to colour yet but think that nature images may be for you then this would be a great book to try and see what colouring genres take your fancy.

The image below was coloured using Stabilo Point 88 fineliners and Staedtler Triplus fineliners which did both bleed a little through the page.
