Finished DRaft of River Pebbles
Download the Colouring Page
If you take the footpath up the back of Rydal Water at the foot of Loughrigg and follow it up towards the quarry, you eventually come to a large stream with a small bridge over the top. The area is sloped and has some very nice trees and a really rocky footpath you have to scramble over. On rainy days the water runs down the grassy slope, under the trees, and into this little stream, and if you are really lucky, you might just catch a glimmer of sunlight as it bounces over the surface of the water and brings out the greys and browns of the pebbles below. I really wasn't sure how I would be able to draw this as a colouring page, but I figured it was worth a go, since looking at water reflecting on pebbles in streams is one of my most favourite things, especially when you hear the steady trickle of water bouncing over the stones. Whether it makes it into the final book is another matter, but I definitely want to include the sound of the stream and pebbles in the augmented reality version, and to try and capture the movement as the water runs over pebbles.
If you love to colour in, I would really appreciate you beta testing this colouring page. Tell me what you like and dislike about it, and what can be done to improve it. Should it be included in the augmented reality colouring book of Rydal Water? What score would you give it out of five, with one being the worst and five being the best?
