This Illustration is based upon a poem by William Blake

The original illustration of an magnificent angel.
Description of Pen Illustration: angel, flowers, feathers, canyon, moonlit night, castle in the distance

"The modest Rose puts forth a thorn,
The humble sheep a threat'ning horn:
While the Lily white shall in love delight,
Nor a thorn nor a threat stain her beauty bright."

Description of The Digital Coloring Page: I have made a "digital tracing" based upon this vintage pen illustration (right). Teachers or parents may choose to show their students/children the original black and white version (above) and talk about how to make all kinds of textures with their pens: cross-hatching, hatching, stippling, squiggles, washes, contour lines etc... in order to draw a similar practice version of their own

Don't forget to drag the png. or jpg into a Word Document and enlarge the image as much as possible before printing it folks. If you have a question about this coloring page, just type into the comment box located directly below this post and I'll try to get back to you as soon as I can.
