On the heels of my “Illustrated Floral Letters Coloring Book” (Buy now for $8.99 on CreateSpace and Amazon!), I’ve noticed some great feedback and a lot of downloads of the “A” and “R” that I made available for download, so I’ve decided to upload a fun free coloring page of succulents.
If you follow BoelterDesignCo on Instagram, you may have recently seen a work in progress post of these illustrated succulents. I think art is best when it is shared and enjoyed, so I thought it would be fun for everyone to enjoy and color a free download of the art. I also enjoy seeing what friends and family color from my available coloring pages, so be sure to upload a picture to Instagram, tag BoelterDesignCo, and let your friends know where you are finding all the fun coloring pages to download.

Why illustrated succulents? Besides the fact they are fun to draw, living in Southern California, I am surrounded by succulents due to the heat and dry weather. I love being able to drive out to the desert and see the huge cacti and colorful succulents. I also have been testing out my green thumb and purchased a few from the Little Italy farmers market.
I also have begun water coloring succulents for my Society6 shop and will begin to sell original watercolor paintings through my Big Cartel shop. So, if you love succulents, please feel free to shop on both sites, whether you are looking for cheaper prints or original art, I will have both available.
I don’t really have a process for water coloring or illustrating. I typically let my interest in a particular species of succulent drive my passion for the art. When I see a beautifully colored succulent, I get inspired to replicate the reality onto paper. I was recently asked what type of paper I like to draw on. I like to use a Mixed Media Canson 98 lb. I find that the texture is very nice for grabbing ink, doesn’t bleed, and has a good thickness.
