I finished off my stained glass coloring book listening to three podcasts of varying length, and have started in on my weird geometric pattern paper coloring book. That one is vicious and evil on my wrist, because the shapes are so small and fiddly and colored pencils have much smaller tips than big Crayola markers so they fill space at a much slower rate. I think I may toss that book out after I finish the one pattern I started and print out some mandalas or something instead.
But anyway, pictures!( cut for images )
The first pattern has no particular significance, but the second and third are, respectively, the associated color sets for Nesta of the Waves and the Serpent: two of the Estarian Trinity from my Firsthome stories
. (The Star is not represented because his/its colors are white, black, and occasionally gray, which struck me as defeating the basic purpose of stained glass.) Nesta gets blue-purple-gray because she's a sea/water goddess, and red because her other main symbolic association is blood. The Serpent gets green-brown for the earth, and yellow-orange for fire. (Dreams and lies do not have colors and are therefore not represented.)
The fourth pattern is a weird color scheme that I am somewhat ambivalent about, but hey, if experiments all worked out flawlessly they wouldn't be experiments. And the last one is just a classic four-color combo that I knew was going to be excellent, because I wanted to finish this series on a high note. :D
