Queen Alexandra’s Colouring Book is an adult colouring book filled with realistic grayscale drawings of butterflies, created particularly for talented children trying to achieve realism with watercolour, oil paint, or pencil. This is more of a training pad for young painters than a traditional colouring book; of course, anyone can use it in any style they please.

However, in my practice as an artist, I have found an accurate underpainting is the best way to generate amazing, realistic results. The name of each butterfly appears on each page, making it easy to find reference material for those interested in finding the right colours. The reference material does not appear in the book to allow individuals to be as creative as they desire.

Furthermore, training artists can copy the drawing on the blank page to improve their drawing skills.
