Art For You Coloring Page

The last two weeks I’ve been enjoying Lisa Bardot’s Kids Week that encourages kid drawing with videos with Lisa and her son, Bear. Take a look for fun ideas and many coloring pages.

I’m still on week one for creating coloring pages and this week I’ve only drawn a flamingo for the coloring pages. Sometimes life is like that, and we just go with the flow. For three animals, see last week’s coloring page post: Elephant, Dragon, Fox

There’s plenty of room for you to add details as you color and imagine a story for each animal. The story is up to you– and the details you add to share your own version of the creature.

Lisa shares HOW TO create a coloring page here, so you can learn to create your own.

I started with creating a flamingo illustration to try out some new strategies for backgrounds using motion blur. As you can see, not all art is perfect, but it’s always enjoyable and a learning experience.
