Spirit of the Wild: A Lyrical Colouring Book by Erica Neumann and Dawn Sprung
A one-of-a kind colouring book for animal lovers, featuring original artwork and poetry.
Spirit of the Wild combines the creative possibilities and therapeutic benefits of today’s most intricate colouring books, but is unique in its inclusion of original poetry to complement the images. Featuring twenty-five of the most iconic birds and mammals of Western Canada based on the paintings of renowned wildlife artist Erica Neumann, this book reflects the wild spirit of the west and is designed to release the imagination, relieve stress, and encourage an appreciation of the natural world. Each spread features a colouring page that can be filled in any style, as well as a black-and-white image of the original painting and a poem by Dawn Sprung that captures the essence of each animal in the book. Spirit of the Wild provides a relaxing and fulfilling pastime for mature colourers of all ages, from teenagers to seniors.
Erica Neumann is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and has been painting since 1983. Neumann is well known for her striking oil paintings of bears and other Canadian wildlife. Her art resides in collections worldwide, including in Britain, Germany, and Australia.
