These illustrations were made for a 'Colour In' book that has just been released in the UK under the title of 'Art studio: Great paintings to colour' and in the USA under the title 'Masterpiece Collection: A Coloring Book of Great Art'.

All of the illustrations are line drawings of classic and iconic paintings from throughout the entire art history. Every page has an image of the original as a reference point. The above animation gives you an idea of the process and development involved in the creation. Below are the final versions. The images were traced with Illustrator and a drawn with a Wacom tablet.
