I have several of the adult coloring books, from sealife to flowers to several of the famous artist series, including Van Gogh, the Impressionists, Monet, etc. I just recieved this book and am impressed that it is two or three times the size of all of the other books, making it a good value. Each page has a picture on one side and is blank on the other side, which means that one can make good use of each picture, without impressions from coloring one side going through to the other side. There were a few pictures that were duplicates from some of my other coloring books, but only a very few.
Gave this to my 17 year old. She found the pages hard to rip out. She traced one and then transferred it to art paper before coloring it with oil pastels. The result is below.
A great fun way to introduce famous art works to the young. It has a small version of each art work on the cover. Your child/student can color the art work the same or make it their own.
Art Masterpieces to Color: 60 Great Paintings from Botticelli to Picasso (Dover Colouring Books)this coloring book was purchased at the same time i purchased the one linked below. as i said in my other review, i am an avid fan of coloring to relax and relieve stress. i also found this coloring book on and had to have it! there are 60 pages to complete... i am planning on searching each picture on the internet as i go along and trying to replicate the colors, shading etc. this book is beyond words! i am completely impressed with the intricate details in the pictures! i have not yet colored in it, but i love looking at the drawings! this is going to be quite the project when i start it. this is definitely for older persons who love to color.START EXPLORING(tm) Masterpieces - A Fact-Filled Coloring Book
Bought this for my 7 year old son. He loves coloring the pictures and it is amusing to see the Mona Lisa with big red lips and blue hair. I also like that the pages rip out easily so I can give him one picture at a time. Good deal!
Yes, as someone who can only draw a stick figure, I'm glad I got this because I can see the paintings, color them with either acrylic pencils that with water turn to a washed look or maintain the darkness pureness of what an acrylic pencil that can give. HOWEVER, the stupidest thing of this book is that the 60 pictures are on paper that if you color with anything other than crayon, or just pencil, it will bleed through the other. No chance for re-do's. Also? The weight of the paper won't handle watercolors so you'll get curled pages.I started with 1 picture found out the limits and did the following but its a time pain in the patootie; I pulled apart the book page by page and YES, it caused torn areas on some pictures. Use non-reflective tape to fix. Then if you have a flat bed copier which I have, you make a picture - although - problem! These are not 8x11 so that means you have to take these to the copy store which means extra money. Now, admittedly, you can make a lot of copies so that means you can color differently the same picture which is cool but - more money for more copies.If they redid this book? They should put it spiral because the binding is so tight you cannot get to the top without contortions which means changing strokes of the pencil/pen/crayon and it looks juvenile then. I know this is just a copy book - sort of like paint by numbers but some take their art seriously and want to try the masterpieces in various ways. You cannot do that with this book the way its set up.Expect to suffer for art!
I love love love these coloring books! My favorite thing about these books is that are good enough to frame when you done with the picture!Colored pencils work best on these books!!Relaxing coloring book for adults!!! I'm a mom of 2 and at the end of the day this is my escape...Recommend to all adults ...men and women!Please let me know if my review helped you in your purchase !
I was wondering why this coloring book was so expensive, but it's more than just a coloring book. It has 60 illustrations of master works of art. The back of the book contains short bios of all the artists. The back cover opens out and has glossy color thumbnails of all the original masterpieces.It's not too detailed so you can do your own shading, etc. Great coloring book for adults, or teens who are into art. The pages are thick enough to use colored pencils or oil pastels, or even pastels, but it's not the right kind of paper for regular pastels.
