As feared as Sharks are, I often wonder why so many tourists swim in the waters here. Perhaps they don't believe there are sharks in this part of the ocean? Maybe they just forget? There are reports of shark attacks here in Hawaii. Most are bites where the human lived because it was a surfer who was mistaken for a seal. The shark doesn't really want to eat a human.
I have seen a shark in the water with me once, while I was scuba diving. It wasn't even close to me but I was terrified! I've heard it said that humans don't really have much to fear from sharks. My instincts tend to disagree with them. I decided to add a couple shark pages to the Hawaiian coloring book because they are definitely part of Hawaii. I respect them.
These new shark pieces are available on my Red bubble website if you don't want to wait for the coloring book release. You can order any of my coloring pages printed on posters, cards, notebooks and other stationary, as well as apparel, and home decor and more!
140# Multimedia paper - It's thick and able to withstand layers of water-based paints. I also enjoy the texture of the 300 series paper. Get 2 packs (32 sheets each) of Arteza Watercolor paper from Amazon by clicking here.
Tombow Calligraphy Pens (fine tips) - My mother gave me a set of these for my birthday and my artistic mind burst with glittery glee when I realized how easily these pens made thick and thin lines in a single stroke! They also ink right over the chalky gouache paint (when it is dry) so if I want to make a piece pop with bold black outlines I can. As an artist I love tools and materials that give me more options to use them. Get a set of 2 pens (different sizes) from Amazon by clicking here.
