Went to the Art Museum today -- to see a Frida Kahlo exhibit (fabulous!!)-- and found this lovely clouring book in the store. Couldn't resist buying it to do a coloring ring :)

from the cover:
Developed during the Edo period of Japanese History (1615-1868), Ukiyo-e art incorpoated themes from the country's classical, literary, and histoical sources. The favorite subjects of its artists were beautiful women--both real and idealized.

Ming-Ju Sun's 30 exquisite ready-to-color- illustrations, adapted from authentic Japanese woodblock prints, feature those lovely ladies--wearing elegant kimonos--in a variety of poses: reading, playing musical instruments,boating, dancing, strolling, among others.

Took a while to decide which one to colour in. My daughter helped me to decide and I did it all in one sitting. I haven't done any colouring for years and enjoyed it. I will look out for adult friendly colouring books in my travels.
There were only 2 people in front of me so lots of choice of pictures but it'll be a shame not to see the finished article.

Received in the post yesterday and have already started my chosen picture. Had to make myself go to bed at 1130 last night, otherwise would have been a really late night! Just a couple more evenings' work, and then it will be on its way.

ohhh, what a nice surprise! I had completely forgotten it was a coloring bookring! It arrived precisely the moment I had decided to start painting again and bought paintbrushes and watercolors and all that. So I was really happy to color one of the beautiful pictures. I apologize for the somewhat sloppy technique, I am still practicing, it's been over a decade that I've last used a paintbrush...

I really love the images. I studied in Japan and this brought back many positive memories.

Doing a coloring bookring is an absolutely brilliant idea! I hope others follow!

Image hosting by Photobucket I just got back from a two-week holiday and found this lovely coloring book in my mailbox, yippie! Thanks for passing it on eatsletters (by the way, I love what you did with the watercolors!).

I'll PM jessibud right away to get her address and will do the coloring tomorrow so the book can resume its journey shortly:)

Wow, this took only 4 days, all the way from France!! Amazing!

These pictures are lovely. I will make my decision tomorrow, and hopefully, colour and have it on its way by next week.

I love colouring! :-)

It's here! Jessibud and I were beginning to worry, but I found it on my hutch today while doing a little tidying. Yippee! I have enjoyed looking at all your colouring thus far and hope to add mine to the mix as soon as possible given the time lost travelling--or sitting on my hutch, if my rotten husband forgot to tell me when it actually arrived :)

What a treat to find this in the mail pile after returning from a long trip. What a lovely job everyone has done so far.

Sorry it has taken me so long to get this done. We are currently having a family health emergency that is draining my energy. My daughter was in town to visit and we did it together. She chose the picture of the Temple of Asakusa because she had been to Japan recently. It was actually therapeutic to do the coloring.

Hint: If you only hve a limited set of colors like we did, plan all your colors out ahead of time.

I will PM the next person in the ring and get the book sent on its way.

REceived today in the mail. I almost gave this one up for lost, I am glad to see that it isn't! I am going to have a hard time deciding which one to color.

my apologies for taking so long to do this, but it has been a very hectic month! Now that things are temporarily settling down, I took a couple of hours today and indulged myself. I chose a picture of three "courtesans". In case you didn't know, not all the women in this book are Geisha. The courtesans are glorified prostitutes or Yujo. There are ways to tell the difference between them and Geisha. Their hair is styled more elaborately and often have more decorations in them, their kimono contain much more fabric than geisha or maiko, and often the obi will be tied in the front instead of the back, which makes it easier for them to undress.
I doubt I got any of the color combinations correct as I know that certain colors and patterns were only worn during certain seasons, but it was fun to do anyway. I used watercolor pencils and then went over it with a slightly damp paintbrush to make it look like watercolors instead of colored pencil. Oh, this was just what I needed. Thanks for including me, erishkigal! I'll PM the next in line and get it moving ASAP.

I looked at the lovely pics you've all done, then laid it down in the office to journal....and it was quickly covered and "out of sight, out of mind." I'm working lonnnnnnnnnng hours 7 days a week at the moment, so it will be awhile, but I do want to get all the pictures scanned and sent out to you to add to the journals. Thank you all for enjoying this book with me!!!
