Edward King colouring sheets

Edward King’s paintings are some of the most well-loved items in our collection. They always draw huge crowds from all over when we display them, with people wanting to see how Portsmouth looked during the Blitz era, as captured by the city’s “unofficial war artist”.

Now, you can step into Edward King’s shoes, with our colouring-in sheets inspired by some of his most famous works. Click the images below to download a full-size colouring in sheet to print off at home.
