Don’t leave colouring just to the kids!

BRISTOL artist, Jenny Urquart, has joined a popular trend and brought out a colouring book for adults.

It features 50 pages of Jenny’s most popular Bristol paintings in full colour and their templates to colour in.

Jenny said: “A friend suggested that I did a colouring book as my pictures are bold and extremely colourful. I thought it was a good idea and spent about a week handdrawing all my pictures into simple lines.

“The response to the book has been fantastic and I’m just so proud of the result. I didn’t quite realise just how many people are out there colouring in, and it will great to see how everyone interprets my images and creates brand new ones!”

There are no rules with colouring in, and Jenny encourages people to either stay within the lines, scribble over the lines, draw or even glue extra bits in! She added: “Colouring has become a fantastic way to relax and allow people who perhaps, wouldn’t normally be creative, to experiment and enjoy experimenting.”

Jenny will be signing books on World Book Day, March 3, at Room 212 on the Gloucester Road.

The colouring book is available at Room 212, the Coldharbour Gallery on Coldharbour Rd, and online at www.thebristolshop.co.uk .
