If you want to make sure that you get the colors right, get a scrap piece of paper and try drawing swatches with the same colored pencil using different amounts of pressure. You can use the swatches as a reference point to decide how much pressure you want to use while coloring.
While coloring is traditionally done with crayon, use any tools that you feel comfortable with. You can try using fine-tip permanent markers, gel pencils, crayons, and different types of pencils such as watercolor.
Making sure that you don’t press too hard with the colored pencils will also prevent them from breaking.
There is a huge variety of coloring pages that are available online for free. Use a search engine to find the pictures that you are looking for, such as specific cartoon characters or animals. Then print as many copies of the coloring pages as you prefer.
Decide what colors you are going to use. For example, you might want to only use cool colors (blues, purples, and dark greens) or only use warm colors (reds, oranges, yellows, and light greens). Or, you might prefer to use all of the colors of the rainbow in your picture.
Sites that feature fantasy coloring pages will also often feature images of mythological characters or some more realistic historical buildings and settings
