That book is a coloring book made for adults. It is not as simple as a child’s coloring book because it has smaller and finer details.
You have to concentrate when you color to get all the small shapes filled in. The concentration tends to make you clear your mind of thoughts, including many negative thoughts and this will help you relieve your stress. You will find that coloring will tend to reduce
anxiety, and will help you focus and in the process it will make you more MINDFULL. It is a therapeutic exercise. The process will stop your mind from all kinds of distracting thoughts. FREEZE YOUR BRAIN!
The word “psychedelic” (first used by British psychologist Humphry Osmond) means “mind manifesting”. By that definition, all artistic
efforts to depict the inner world of the mind or mental efforts may be considered “psychedelic”. Normally, “psychedelic art” refers to the art movement of the late 1960s hippies and drug counterculture. “Far Out Man!” sums it up. It includes mind blowing patterns
and shapes, and above all, bright colors that assault the senses and give a feeling of something strange going on in the mind because of the psychedelic images. These pages will give you that feeling. It depends on the coloring, the melding and clashing of adjacent colors that you provide by filling in the tiny spaces between the overlapping lines.
Colorists will show a tendency to get lost drawing in the repetitive patterns and the extended detail. It’s like a mystic thought process or listening to someone’s long drug monologue. It will form an impenetrable wall of pattern by building a different mental world. All the repetitive patterning will lull you into a place where your thoughts can spiral into those really interesting places. It’s like a really long varied drug experience but you don’t need to take drugs to have the experience. It’s a fantasy land of colorful, swirling, psychedelic bubbles.
Have fun coloring and letting your mind go.
All the work here is by the Hawaiian artist Stephen E Jorgensen. Although he never took drugs to enhance his art style, however, he
used to hang out with artists that did and can easily reproduce the psychedelic effects of such a state. He specializes in Hawaiian scenes, (Hawaii can be a very “trippy” place.) He has produced over 200 other works of beautiful Hawaiian art sold in Hawaii and on
the internet. Most of his work is as large canvas wall hangings, some of which are reduced to coloring pages in some of his books. A
lot of his other Hawaiian work is smaller 6″X8″ watercolors which provides the originals for most of the images in his Hawaiian Scenes coloring books. Those coloring books will bring the beauty of Hawaii into your life. The next best thing to actually going there.
