So, I guess at least "adult colouring books" gives the budding artist in you the chance to feel you have created some form of masterpiece. But even this I doubt would make me an artist. I don't think my colour choices would be visually appealing.
I do however, see the enjoyment and possibly a sense of accomplishment for completing a difficult piece. If you are able to wrestle the crayons and coloured pencils from your kids, and can find a quiet spot to concentrate, I guess it could be a form of stress relief, and relaxation.
As yet, I have not given into the temptation of buying a colouring book for myself. I do, however enjoy the intricate patterns and lines of many of the images that I find in these books. If you too are toying with the idea of trying this latest craze, I have included a couple of links* you might like to check out.
*Please note, the links below are not my own creation nor are they my websites. I would like to acknowledge Lena, from What Mommy Does; Thaneeya of Art is Fun; and the team at Free Large Images for providing these fun images.
Happy crafting xo
