Crocus – DOWNLOADABLE COLOURING PAGE #13
I am back with a new colouring page series! After last year’s flower wrteahts, in 2021 I have prepared a set of botanical illustrations for us to colour. Sometimes these will be seasonal – like this month’s crocus – and sometimes less so.
I am also doing a live painting session of this piece on 28th February (2021) at 16.00 CET, which you are welcome to join. I shall be speaking in Hungarian, but you might still enjoy the painting process. If you missed the live session, just click the video below, put on some music of your choice and enjoy!
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 flower wreath! If you post your finished piece on Instagram, please don’t forget to tag meg @imeldagreens!

So beautiful. It would be so helpful to have translation with your video.
Be well, Cynthia

Hey Cynthia! I’m still in the process of working out a solution to this, because transalting takes ages (I haven’t even got a transcript). But I would love to do more narrated videos as I know how much it helps when someone actually explains the process.
