Marlborough Colouring Pages

With kids (and adults) stuck at home due to another Covid-19 lockdown for several days at least, I've quickly learnt a new Photoshop skill; how to turn photos into colouring pages. Here are a few Marlborough scenes that you can download as printable pdfs to colour in. I've done these quite quickly from some of my photos, so there's definitely potential for them to be better, and if you're a Photoshop expert you might think my editing could be better, but I suspect kids won't be as picky as we adults can be and if this can keep some younger members of the community occupied, then I'm sure their parents will be happy.
Feel free to post the results of your or your kids efforts online. I don't check Facebook, but occasionally check Twitter as @mlbnz, but kids aren't supposed to be on social media anyway, so you can also upload a coloured in image on this page if you'd like it published to show off your family's efforts to the rest of Marlborough, as Marlborough Online doesn't require signing up for anything to view. You can also use the upload form on this page if you've like to share an awesome Marlborough photo that you think would make a good colouring page.
The files are quite large, and I have to pay for hosting, so I've only done a few, however I have thousands of images of Marlborough on my computer, so I might be able to take requests if you've got some local subject you'd really like turned into a colouring page. If you're a business or other organisation that's not affected by lockdown, and would like to help with hosting costs, contact me, and I can organise a sponsorship arrangement where I can put 'Sponsored by ...' on the downloadable pdfs.
