Download and Colour This Page
When I first thought about drawing this stone wall and gate on my walk around Rydal Water, I was worried that it would be really boring - why would anyone be interested in a wall and a gate? But when I thought about it more, it occurred to me that dry stone walls are something iconic, something associated with the Lake District and with the British countryside. To not at least include a wall or part of a wall somewhere in the book of Rydal Water seemed wrong somehow. I was really worried about how I would manage to draw such a picture, with all the perspective and depth and texture from the moss and lichens and hundreds of years of being exposed to Great British weather. But somehow it turned out OK, and I think you can see it is a wall and a gate. I don't know how it will be as a colouring page though - probably infuriating and fiddly! And I'm not completely happy with all the shapes as yet, but for a first draft I'm pleased I stuck with it.
What I need now is for you guys as colouring enthusiasts to download this page for me, using the link below, and to colour it in and see how you get on. Is it too complex for a colouring page, or do you like to have a selection of complex and less complex pictures in your colouring books, to give you something for every mood? Let me know how you get on as my trusted beta testers. Don't forget to give this page a mark out of five, one being the worst and five being the best. Only the high scorers will be in the final book and go on to be augmented reality. Not sure what that would be for this page, perhaps the gate will swing open and you will hear it squeak?
Looking forward to reading your comments and seeing your coloured pages in the comments section below. Or share them with me on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, just tag me @sarahrowssolo
