Klara Markova Coloring Book Tutorials

by Klára Marková

Klara Markova has a massive amount of  fans of  her coloring books,   Carovne Lahodnosti (Magical Delights) and the follow up book,  Nehyplne Carovnosti (Tenderful Enchantments).

When you first receive your precious books you may become overwhelmed with their luxurious format – hardback cover, gold foiling.  Inside there is beautiful paper and illustrations formatted so you can use whatever medium you fancy, without damaging a main image.

The question of course is where to start!

Thankfully,  there are some amazingly talented colorists that have put together tutorials that you can follow along with to color Klara’s books.   Of course, you can color your book anyway that you please, but if you are like me and need some inspiration then you may find these tutorials and color palettes useful. These are my favorite tutorials showing coloring in Klara Markova’s coloring books, which I will update from time to time.

About Klára Marková

Klara Markova is a Czech jewellery designer and illustrator.    Her jewellery is created using traditional methods and has a sense of dreaminess and magic about it.   Little fairy houses and fairy bracelets have been created in silver and delicately molded.  There are amulets and crystals that are widely used.    Her jewellery is very indicative of her drawings in her first coloring book.    There are flowers, leaves, crystals and fruit representations that have been recreated into magic rings and fairy bracelets.   This similar imagery  is also in the coloring book and reminds you of her hand crafted jewellery.    An artist that creates jewels like this and lives in a dreamy, magical world  could only reproduce the same in illustrative form.   Her first coloring book, Carovne Lahodnosti (Magical Delights) reflects this magical world of elves, fairies and crystals and other delights.   Like her jewellery this coloring book encompasses a craftsman touch with a high attention to detail.

About the author


I'm Lea and I love everything to do with coloring! If it is a coloring book, a poster or even a bookmark that you can color in, I'm all over it. Of course, a girl has to have some pencils, markers, gelly rolls, pastels and what not to make those pictures pretty and I love those as well.

Whilst my coloring style lacks skill, I am enthusiastic and focused on enjoying the moment and having fun.
