Mid-Century Retro Designs : A Treasure Hunt and Coloring Adventure (Paperback) (Robin Pickens)
about this item
Color cool with mid-century modern! Talented designer Robin Pickens presents 32 nostalgic drawings to color with markers, colored pencils, watercolors, or gel pens. Discover a “modern” world, circa the 1950s and 60s, of fresh, engaging illustrations that evoke the clean lines, geometric structures, and understated cool of mid-twentieth century style—think Eames lounge chairs, Mad Men decor, and Eichler homes. Nestled somewhere within each design are special little icons and symbols for you to find (shown on the back of each page so you know what to look for). Have fun finding these tucked-away friends as you bring each image to life with glorious color! Robin gets you started with the basics of choosing and combining colors for beautiful results. You’ll also learn how to color the same image in different ways to create a feeling or set a mood. Full-color examples of finished pieces will get you inspired to pick up your coloring tools. Printed on one side only of high-quality, extra-thick paper, each page is perforated for easy removal and display.
