Throw this into your pack and color at your lake destination during lunch or in your tent at last light. Adult coloring books are hugely popular and for good reason—they calm the mind and ease our creative souls. Nature provides its own stress-free and mindful influence; this little, joy-filled book gives outdoor lovers another way to tap into that focus and appreciate their natural surroundings.
Lida Enche is an artist, teacher, and nature lover from Seattle. Much of her work consists of vibrant, color-splashed paintings, inspired by the tremendous joy she feels while creating art. For this new project, a coloring book specific to the Pacific Northwest landscape, she encourages would-be colorists to experience that same joy and to find their own inspirations and calming influences in the region’s outstanding natural beauty.
Enche referenced a variety of field guides to accurately depict beargrass and black bears, sea stars and sword ferns, bald eagles and berries. Our national parks—North Cascades, Mount Rainier, Olympic, and Crater Lake—as well as a range of recognizable Northwest habitats, all make an appearance too! She adds a slightly stylized approach to her line art that will inspire people of all ages to pick up their colored pencils, markers, or crayons and relax into a scene.
