    Is it just me (and that wouldn't surprise me) but I find the adult colouring books too busy - I looked at them today and felt dizzy with all the squiggly lines and intricate shapes - it didn't look very therapeutic to me. Are other books different?

    Yeah me too.
    I bought two (months ago) and gave them to my DS because I found the space between the black lines just to small to enjoy any kind of colouring in them.
    I'm not great with intricate things lose my rag a bit HAHA.

    I do like this guys work though.
    I've been following him on FB for years now and he blows me away.
    He posts videos of his free hand work and he has a colouring book out as well.
    Unreal!
    I might buy his book and see how I go, I know DS1 would love it if it's too busy for me.

    The intricate lines are kinda the point behind the calming of it, although even the less defined ones would still have some benefit. It's like your body goes into a meditation by focusing on getting that tiny area coloured. I went to a meditation retreat and we did calligraphy meditation which was the same, you have to focus your mind on each stroke and it clears your mind of the clutter we are so used to thinking about all the time.

    I think it's about $40 here but I usually do a bulk order from Amazon every few months (much cheaper than retail books, even with shipping) to keep my reading sorted and the last couple of times I've ordered a colouring book as well.
    I bought Tropical Wonderland on book depository for $15 delivered. They have so many to pick from and fantastic prices

    I get so engrossed in my colouring, DH actually came into the living area the other evening and was talking to me. I didn't even notice him. It was only later that it permeated my conscious mind that he must have been speaking to me but I didn't even acknowledge him being there. I've always been his iPad widow, now he's my colouring widower.

    Hmm yes hadn't thought of it like that, I will have another look and maybe try to see it more along these lines.
