Can anyone recommend any colouring books they particularly like for adults. Also any books that teach total beginners to use coloured pastels. I know I can find these books online, but it’s good to get a recommendation.

In September I am having two toes straighten and I will have my feet up for about 2 weeks and need to fill my time. I thought art would be a lovely way of passing the time.

If you want to develop an art skill then it won't be a colouring book you need..though think they can be satisfyingly calming.
Have a look out for online tutorials or art sessions..they may give you clearer guidance on the particular aspect you want to learn.
I am not particularly artistic..Dick Bruna is my stylegrin

I love the books by Johanna Basford. It feels like she puts a lot of thought into them.
Some of the pictures that people create from her line drawings are amazing.

Thanks both of you for your advice.

Try YouTube for art lessons. Some of them are excellent.
