Coloring Essentials – Beginner’s Coloring Guide (BONUS)

Exlusive Free Bonus for our Coloring Academy members! ($15 Value)

This is a digital version of our printed book Coloring Essentials – Beginner’s Coloring Guide in a PDF download that you can print on your own printer with your own paper.

NOTE: this PDF book is setup for 2-sided (duplex) printing; however, we like to print our coloring pages single-sided. To make this possible for you, we have added extra blank pages throughout the book so that any of the hands-on worksheets & coloring pages will be printed single-sided. This is why you will see blank pages in the book–so you can set your printer to “2-Sided” or “Duplex” and just hit “Print.”

    This book is absolutely FANTASTIC! Thanks so much for creating this all in one wonderful resource.

    Thanks for finally making an educational coloring book instead of just allowing all of this important information to stay in Coloring Bliss’s video tutorials that I don’t learn best from because of my diagnosed two different auditory processing disorders (APDs) and a language processing disorder (LPD) on top of my diagnosed autism and two other diagnosis outside of autism. I hope Coloring Bliss comes out with another educational book about waterbased mediums that includes different sections about watercolor based dual markers like the Ohuhu and Tombows for example, watercolor brush pens like the Arteza Real Brush Pens and the Jane Davenport Mermaid pens for example, watercolor paints and waterbased fineliner pens like the Stabilo point 88 and the Staedtler for example.

    I like there is an educational coloring book for people like me who don’t learn best through video tutorials. I hope there is another educational coloring book in the future that goes over using different types of water based mediums including sections about dual waterbased markers/pens, water brush pens, watercolor paints and waterbased fineliner pens.

    I haven’t printed this book as yet. I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated how you Arranged all of us to get Digitals in Canada and other places. I just upgraded to $15 month

    Jennifer and Steve,

    Thank you for creating such a lovely and helpful skills book, especially for “wanna be” artists like me who really have no skills, just a strong desire to develop them. Dealing with chronic pain issues (and a whole plethora autoimmune diseases), I find great comfort in your exceptional artwork and the help you provide. Even at a more advanced age, this “old dog” still wants to learn new tricks.

    PS I sure was glad to hear that Rosie has recovered. Frank, my emotional support companion, and I were rooting for her. Having recently lost my other best friend, Harley; he is sorely missed.

    Sorry, I didn’t mean for this to end up being about me, rather I meant it to be about you and your willingness to share your knowledge and skills.

    With upmost respect,

    Kat Pearce

    Thank you for the book, very nice. I appreciate the hours and hours of work to create it. I look forward to continue my education in the future months.

    Thankyou so much for the book, bringing Australia, what paper should I purchase for markers and colouring pencil. I’m a watercolourist too . Does mix media serve all 3. Any chance of international shipping in the future?
    Great job, Love to Rosie and you both. You’re a highlight of my day as Im stuck at home unable to walk any more, due to injuries and complications. God Bless.
    Jen from Ballarat in Australia.

    Just printed out the Essentials book and it’s too bad it’s 1AM because I want to get started working now! I’m so glad I found you, the website, tutorials and all the rest. I started coloring awhile ago to cope with intractable chronic pain and Multiple Sclerosis. I was feeling down with regular life and then COVID hit! I was in a tizzy getting supplies, learning how this would impact me with an autoimmune disease, etc. That’s when I picked up my first coloring book and started playing. It’s been a life saver. Two years ago my dear sister, who also had MS, died from Covid. She contracted it from a care worker who refused to get vaccinated. My grief came with a double dose of paranoia and I became a hermit in my home. I can’t thank you enough for your website and cheerful videos. It’s pulled me out of a dark place. Who knew that something so simple as “coloring” could open up the world?

    Thank you for including this PDF in the Coloring Academy!

    I really appreciate how much love and attention you put into this very informative book. You have opened my eyes to seeing that I am actually capable of learning new skills when it comes to Art. Coloring has helped me so much more than I thought possible. It helps me with decision making, it helps me feel more accomplished and gives me something for both me and my almost 11 year old daughter another opportunity to spend time and connect. I am forever grateful to you and your husband.
