Description

From the burnt-orange bark of the arbutus trees and jewel-green ferns, to the vibrant ochre sea star and the gradated hues of magical sunsets, the colours of British Columbia's coast have long inspired painters, including Yvonne Maximchuk, a versatile artist who is reknowned for her expressive depictions of the land, sea and wildlife. Working from her remote Echo Bay studio, Maximchuk has joined the adult colouring-book craze and created forty original illustrations for colourists to enjoy.

 

Colour the British Columbia Coast is inspired by the infinite material of the West Coast, including floathouses and boats, grizzlies and whales, misty vistas and undersea creatures. Printed on high-quality art paper with perforated pages for easy removal, the book is a receptive foundation for various mediums, from pencil crayons and pastels to felt markers and watercolour paints. Each illustration is accompanied by an in-depth caption describing the scene as well as colouring tips from the artist, making this the perfect keepsake book for anyone looking to unwind and rediscover their creative side--and Coastal BC.
