The Art of Mindfulness: Relaxed and Focused Colouring – A Review

Disclaimer – Please read this disclosure about my use of affiliate links which are contained within this post.
The Art of Mindfulness: Relaxed and Focused Colouring is published and was very kindly sent to me for review by Michael O’Mara Books. This book contains a large number of natural images and many of these include patterns within them in a zentangle-style to create lots of small spaces that can be coloured over or within to create different effects. There are also a large number of patterned pages that contain abstract images, repeating designs, crazy shapes and more. If you liked Color Me Calm and Color Me Happy then you’re sure to love this book because it contains illustrations from Angela Porter who illustrated both of them and her style is very unique and striking with its flowing scenes that you can’t quite tell whether they’re scenery or just abstract shapes. The natural images include dolphins, birds, flowers, mountains, stars, peacocks and so much more. This book is a great all-rounder and perfect for beginners who want to try a bit of everything or anyone who enjoys colouring a huge variety of designs. The line thickness ranges from thin to medium/thick and mostly resides within the medium range so this is a good book for those of you who struggle a little with fine motor control or who don’t have perfect vision and still want to be able to colour some fairly intricate and detailed images. This is a lovely book which is perfect for practising mindfulness because the details force you to concentrate and this can be used as a great distraction technique when you’re feeling anxious or low and really need to get out of your own head.

The image below was coloured using Staedtler Triplus Fineliners and Stabilo Point 88 Fineliners, both of which caused a little bleeding through to the reverse image.
