Colouring Paradise: Andy Warhol and White Space

detail colouring paradiseThis little girl from the late 15th Century is looking out at something none of us can see, the moment before deciding whether to step out there (where?) or stay where she is.

Deciding how much white space to use in a colouring book is always a question. Too much and it’s a bore. Too little and there’s no room for a colourist to bring light and shape to the source.  I looked to Andy Warhol’s colouring book, made in the eighties, for guidance.  I found white space galore, and a generous note at the back from Warhol saying frame these if you like. 

I like.  Thanks for the inspiration, Andy!
