Whatever is Lovely: A Coloring Book for Reflection and Worship

*Post contains affiliate links*


I remember I always loved to color. Even into my teens and early adulthood, I had a pretty large selection of coloring books and a huge Tupperware container of crayons, one of markers, and another of colored pencils. I always loved art and took art as electives all though high school. I would sit on my days off from work, alone in my apartment at the age of 19 and 20 and color in my books for hours while listening to music and drinking a nice hot cup of tea. I still love to color in kids coloring books, but I'm glad to see that coloring books have advanced through the years with more detailed and more beautiful pictures. 


I was drawn to Whatever is Lovely because of the incredible pictures inside. Beautiful drawings by various artists with inspirational quotes. Now, I'm not religious by any means. That's not to say I don't believe in anything, but I'm open minded. So the book isn't so much about the quotes to me as it is the gorgeous artwork. And as an artist myself, I appreciate the artwork of other artists more than the average person. 

Each page has art with varying degrees of detailing. Some are very detailed and will take a bit of time to color, others are simple and quick to complete. On the back of each coloring page is the full quote with it's source as well as the credit to the artist that produced the beautiful picture you just colored. 

While a lot of coloring books for adults have pages that can easily be torn out to share or be framed, this particular book does not feature that. That doesn't mean you couldn't carefully cut it out of the book as I think these would be beautiful framed and gifted! I also don't think this could be appealing strictly to adults. Children would love coloring in this as well. 

The pages are a decent thickness making this perfect for colored pencils, crayons, gel pens, markers, and even watercolor is you so choose. Since they are one sided pictures, there should be no problem with marker bleeding through to the next page, although, if you do decide watercolor is the way to go, I would definitely cut the page out or insert a thin piece of cardboard between the pages.

I have to say that next to my Disney Princess Art Therapy Book (which is actually hardcover and gorgeous), this is my second favorite coloring book that I own, and I own a small library full at this point.
