This book is a result of a folk art inspired peace bird that I illustrated for an instagram post in support of the Ukrainian people. It has undeniably been an excruciating month for so many. My heart goes out to all affected and I hope that there can be a resolution soon and healing can begin.
After drawing the Ukrainian peace bird, I kept going and thirty birds later...here is a new book dedicated to "modern folk art birds". This book is an addition to my "Scandinavian-inspired" coloring books. I absolutely love this kind of artwork. It is abstract and geometric in many ways but also very much about celebrating the natural world. The line art is fairly bold with small details added – but not too many so they are not getting in the way of coloring. The majority of the book is single birds but there are also a number of pages with two birds or more.
I wanted to create another book that is a square (8-1/2" x 8-1/2") format. I find this is a good size for quick, uncomplicated coloring and it has a natural symmetry which is really nice. It felt like the book needed to be a double set in order to be able to try out different color schemes.
Thank you for taking a look at my newest coloring book, Modern Folk Art Birds! I hope that you love it and find peace in the pages.
All my best, Coloring Friends!
