How is a grayscale coloring book different from the one’s you’re used to seeing at Amazon or in hobby stores? Photographs, in this case our photos of Glacier National Park, have been processed into gray images. Although the concept looks difficult, once you begin coloring, you’ll see how easy and simple grayscale coloring is, especially if you’re a non-artistic type like me.

This mountain goat entertained us on a hike to Hidden Lake overlook. I’m so glad that his photo was good enough to include in this coloring book. I could almost feel his fur as I colored him.

How do you color in a grayscale coloring book?

Use the gray shading to guide color selections using darker colors in the dark gray sections and lighter colors in the lighter gray areas. The results are amazingly realistic. And the artistic quality of the finished page will make you feel like an artist.

Whether you enjoy shading, detailed coloring or simply having fun with colors, you’ll find relaxation and travel inspiration in the pages of Coloring Glacier National Park, A Grayscale Coloring Book for Travelers.

Which tools are best for grayscale coloring?

Color with your favorite coloring implements like colored pencils or even gel pens or markers, although watercolor pencils might not show up as well. I use Prismacolor Premier Soft Core Colored Pencils, a sharpener and a blender pencil.
