Presenting an illustration from The Ornamental Arts of Japan (1882) as today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page. It is a Japanese woodcut after the original drawing by Toyeki, 16th century.

“It is worthy of note with what few and decided brush strokes the birds have been represented; and the masterly manner in which every characteristic detail has been expressed rather than clearly delineated. All the masters of this school were celebrated for their bold free-hand style of delineation, chiefly in monochrome. Birds, whose plumage offered favourable fields for the exercise of skilful single brush-stroke work, were naturally favourite subjects.”

Presenting an illustration by Sarah Noble-Ives who is also the author of Songs of the Shining Way (1899) as today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page.

“Where the Shining Way is broadest, there’s a nest;
Two fat Robins live in it,
In and out I see them flit,
And the biggest wears a gorgeous crimson vest.

We are friends, and so when I
Come to look, they do not fly,
But they chatter from the branches of the tree;
And I run down there to play,
When the sun shines, every day,
And next year they say they’ll build a nest for me.”
