Print this beautiful free cactus coloring page for adults (perfect for big kids too!) These vivid cacti (well, if you make ’em vivid) sit in a pretty patterned desert with a brilliant sun and an almost cloudless sky. Yep, I googled photos of deserts to make sure I can get away with putting some clouds in the sky… Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links.
For this month’s coloring tribe theme, we decided to go with cacti. With Baby Y’s first birthday party just around the bend, I decided to offer you a sample from my latest book, Postcards: coloring for creative adults instead of creating something from scratch.
I absolutely love desert scenes – and this one is one of my favorite from the book (which also includes the postcard size version).
It has everything I look for in a page – smaller spaces, larger spaces, the opportunity to play with shading… If you look closely, I added some “drop shadows” on the larger cactus that I colored.
I used STABILO Pen 68 markers for this one – and will probably use the Point 88 for the smaller spaces when/if I ever get to it – ha! I played with vivid shades of green and yellow for the cactus, and reds, oranges, and yellows for the sun. I’m still debating how to do the landscape and foreground cactus – any ideas, feel free to share in the comments.
