As New Zealand prepares to enter a four-week nationwide lockdown (thanks, COVID-19), I have been wondering if there might be some little thing that I could do to make life a little lighter and brighter for those in isolation from their normal lives. And so the first of my colouring pages is being born. Of course I have picked THE most complicated scene to start with… and it’s taking ages to draw… but I figure that if I’m not bored, anyone colouring it in might be not bored too.
I’m planning to do at least three New Zealand landscapes as colouring pages. My first page is based on a photograph of Port Chalmers with the historic Iona Church in the foreground and a large congregation of houses and trees in the surrounding neighbourhood. It may take a day or two (or three) to finish… and then it will be available via Etsy as a printable instant download.

Great idea Anna, look forward to progress reports
That’ll be amazing Anna. We visited the church site not that long ago (I blogged some photos) and it’s such a lovely place to be! What your doing is coming along so nicely.
That looks a *lovely challenge Anna 😉
I’m sure you’ll be working on a number of creative projects at this time, I think alot of folk will be re-discovering old hobbies and trying new indoor crafts to keep their minds and hands busy . We’re in for the long haul to beat this Covid-19 let’s hope the scientists can make a break through soon with treatment if not a cure at this stage . Here’s to more colour in our lives 🙂 Keep safe Anna x
Thanks, Poppy. Yes, it has been quite the challenge (I’ve only just finished it)… I hope you and your family are well and finding ways to make the most of these strange days, xxx P.S. I wanted to comment on your Sketchbook Sunday #1 post but comments are closed (and I don’t know how I missed seeing it when you posted it). What a beautiful sketch! Love it! And thanks so much for the shout out too, xxx
