Alice In Waterland Coloring Book Review
As everyone knows I love all the different interpretations of Alice in Wonderland that artists provide us with. This coloring book, merges Alice with a mermaid theme in a completely different take on Alice in Wonderland. I’ve never seen my beloved Alice immersed in a water theme so I couldn’t wait to get this book.
Sadly, the post had other ideas and this book was lost in the mail for months until a replacement was issued. Finally, I got it in my hot little hands and could enjoy a new book for my “Alice” collection.
Cover & Layout
The matte cover features a gorgeous Alice with mermaid tail and a lovely Cheshire cat! All of the elements that make up Alice in Wonderland are on the page including the white rabbit, drink me, cards and clock are there but it’s different! The mermaid tail the fish and coral all present the watery theme. Even the white rabbit has a mermaid tail!
On the back cover the colored chubby mermaid logo features with information on where to find other coloring books by the artist.
Alice in Waterland measures 8.5 in x 11 in which is roughly A4 size.
At the start of the book there is a decorated name plate page. At the end of the book there is a blank page. Either of those pages would be a great place to test out your mediums and color palettes.
Illustrations have been printed on one side of the white, trade stock paper. If you are using markers on the page I would put a blotter page between the pages to avoid ghosting or bleed through. Usually, I remove the image, even if using pencils to color on a clip board.
There are 24 illustrations to color in the book excluding the Ancillary Pages. All of the illustrations are orientated portrait style and have some form of decorative border. Each illustration has been well positioned and centered on the page avoiding the spine. Art work is also well balanced on the page and makes use of the whole of the page for elements.
Alice In Waterland Coloring Book Images and Illustrations
Fans of Deborah Muller will immediately recognise her distinctive drawing style. She is an imaginative artist to think of merging one of my favorite fairy tales with a mermaid theme and the result is just gorgeous.
You will find your favorite characters from Alice in Wonderland in a mermaid look which is just adorable. For colorists it means that there are even more things to color in like mermaid scales, hair, sea creatures, mushrooms and of course lovely metal effects for clock faces.
Line art in the book is black, crisp and easy to see. Colorists that have a minor visual impairment will find that the medium weight lines used in the book will be easy to see th e details. Although there are a lot of elements on the page, there are open spaces to color, making it easier for colorists with a motor impairment. The great thing about mermaid scales for colorists that have challenges coloring detail is that you can color wash over the scales or just add a dab of glitter rather than coloring the small scales.
