Welcome to Color Art. I am Betty Hung. My coloring journey started last year when I bought a coloring book and a pack of color pencils before I boarded a 14 hour flight. I haven’t stopped coloring since.
I have loved coloring as a child. Although I chose IT as my career, I kept art and design as my hobby and has taken drawing and watercolor courses. I am drawn to adult coloring because there are a large variety of coloring books to choose from. There are so many talented illustrators that I admired. It takes the “what should I draw” dilemma from me and all I do is add color to the pages and made them uniquely mine. How about you? Why do you enjoy coloring?
What to expect
Along the way, I have learned a lot more about tools, techniques, tips, and tricks. Every day I find new ideas. Sometimes I create my own illustrations. Social media is a wonderful thing. I learned a lot from other colorists who shared their skills and their work. The creation of this blog site is my way of giving back to the community. I do not profess to be the know-it-all of coloring but I will gladly share what I have learned. An artist’s journey can be a lonely. Without a platform to showcase your work and discuss your ideas or problems with others, it is a lot less fun. By sharing, we can inspire each other and grow together in this common hobby of ours. I also practice zentangle, brush lettering and calligraphy. My coloring art is not limited to coloring books. Someday I might venture into coloring rocks or anything else that can be colored. You might be surprised at what I try next!

Color versus Colour
Lastly I apologize to those of you who use “colour” instead of “color”. I do respect everyone and their language preferences. However, I can only pick one form of the spelling. I choose to use “color” throughout this site for the simple reason that this is the way I spell it all the time.
