Even though we cannot quite enjoy it as much as we usually do, spring is in full swing, and plenty of flowers are in bloom – peonies, for instance. These beautiful flowers form the basis of this month’s printable colouring page.
Fun fact: when I started drawing this series of flower wreaths, this was the first one I finished, and it continues to be one of my favourite colouring pages. The finished piece actually reminds me of porcelain designs. What do you think?
In the video below you can see my colouring process in watercolour. Choose your favourite medium to colour, but if you like, you can use my process as a starting point.
How to download and paint the colouring page
First, download the colouring page from the content library. To reach the content library, you should subscribe to my newsletter. After subscribing, you should get the password in a few minutes by email (if you don’t get it, look for it in the spam/promotions folder too). If you are already subscribed, you can find the password at the bottom of the latest newsletter.
Print the colouring page. The PDF that you download contains the wreath in A4 size. If you like to work in smaller or larger sizes, feel free to print it in a different size.
If you use watercolour, like I did, make sure you use watercolour paper. To do this, you have 2 options:
- print the wreath directly on watercolour paper. In this case, make sure your paper is not thicker than 180 gsm as thicker paper can ruin your printer
- your other option is to print this colouring page on regular 80 gsm paper, then trace it onto your favourite watercolour paper with the help of a lightbox (window) or carbon transfer paper.
Even if you don’t use watercolours to paint this colouring page, always remember to use the kind of paper that suits your chosen technique best.
So, now all is left is to colour your February flower wreath! If you post your finished piece on Instagram, please don’t forget to tag meg @imeldagreens!
