I was familiar with Francien’s columns about her cats. Gorgeous drawings of her cats along with fun stories about them.
I love her drawings, so I was over the moon when she came out with this book for her anniversary. I immediately went to buy it.
The book has 8 different colouring pages on nice thick paper. The pages have a lovely big size of 27 x 35 cm.
The drawing is printed on one side, so you can use whatever colouring media you like, without it bleeding through. You could also take out the page to frame it.
On the other side of the page she wrote something about the cat(s) you just coloured in.
A nice perk!
I coloured two pages and I’m working on a third one.
I coloured this one with Faber Castel Polychromos and Koh-i-Noor Polycolor pencils. I also used Stabilo watercolour pencils, fineliners and a white gelpen.
I find that all media works great on the paper. Also, the use of water isn’t damaging.
I used the same media for this page, but also used some extra; Caran d’Ache Neocolor II, a black Staedler feltpen and a Stabilo pastel pencil. The black cat has a lot of layers, because I wanted to use other colours at first, but didn’t like how it came out. I went over the first pencil layers with Caran d’Ache Neocolor II, acrylics and feltpens. It amazed me that I could put on so many layers without damaging the paper.
There are some examples given on the first page of the book, coloured by Francien.
The examples are quite small.
Francien’s Cat Colouring Book for Adults is a book with gorgeous drawings and nice thick paper. If you like to colour cats then this is perfect for you and I’d highly recommend it to anyone.
I bought the book via bol.com for € 9,99
