Princess Coloring Book by katiedesousa Princess Coloring Book by katiedesousa
I watch a lot of art blogs, and two artists that I really admire did these coloring book pieces where you take a coloring book picture and color it like a classical painting. The artists are Ryan Wood and Sam Neilson. (click their names to see their pieces)

This is the coloring book page I used: [link]
I used this painting by W. Bouguereau as my inspiration for the colors.

It was just a fun exercise, about 2-3 hours, you can actually watch the video of me painting this if you'd like! It's on my livestream channel: [link]

2-3 hours I think
(it isn't refined because it was just a little fun speedy painting thing)

I saw this years ago, and then remembered it again and decided to trawl dA for half an hour trying to find it again. No regrets. Looks as fantastic as I remembered!

I never would have thought of taking coloring pages and doing them like that, its a great idea, its almost like showing how when you were a kid you colored with crayons and now once you learn to use things like photoshop or whatever you may have used, you colored it in that way. Makes me want to do it too :)

And this is very beautiful by the way, love the style of the coloring.
