My Celtic Mandalas colouring book published by Dover Publications.
The first image on the left is a mandala featuring Celtic peacocks with lovely woven tails and curling wings. Celtic birds are so much fun to colour up because really you can’t go wrong with any colour theme – traditional peacock colours, rosy golds and shades of pink and cream, fantastic shades of purple and teal… you decide!
Next we have a round design inspired by an ancient Celtic carved stone monument. All the spirals interlock to create an engaging design for beginner or intermediate colourists. Depending on the colours you choose, you could accent the cross motif hidden within this design to add another layer of interest.
On the right we have an art nouveau styled design. I love art nouveau and it’s such a perfect match with Celtic art. Beautiful stained glass feeling lilies are nestled amongst loads of Celtic knot work and tiny tulips flowers, all surrounded by a Celtic knot work border. Want to see a coloured version of this page? Check out my painting of it on Etsy, featuring gold leaf and watercolour!
The next pages from this book that I’d like to share feature a strong amount of Celtic knot work. If you like traditional Celtic knotting then you’re going to get your fill with this book! The lefthand image shows a leafy styled design, accented with tiny knots and a dotted border. Dotted borders don’t have to be repetitive, use them to create your own pattern – alternate colours, repeat colour sets or shade each dot slightly differently to subtly blend from colour to colour.
The middle design is very stained glass feeling to me and also has a lovely cross shape that could be accentuated depending on the colours you chose. On the left is a heart knot woven with even more heart knots! I used a bit of black in this page and envision it coloured up in lots of reds or pinks for a really dramatic look. Do you like colouring pages than have black areas already coloured in or do you prefer to make that choice yourself? Let me know!
Below are few more samples for you to enjoy!
