Artist Arto Törmänen created 30 designs “inspired by the beauty of nature and the human body” in this delightfully detailed book. While the topic of many designs could be considered “intimate.” Arto explores them with a grace and elegance that is artistic, not vulgar. While this book may not be considered appropriate for young children, it is a wonderful coloring book for the adult colorist who enjoys artistic expression and the beauty of the human form. While the designs are single-sides, the Vivid Owl Coloring team decided to take smaller versions of each design and display them on the back of each image in grayscale. So if you are using a medium such as colored pencil, you could decide to color those as well.
