Search for pictures of flowers and trees if your child likes nature. Search for something like “outdoors children’s coloring pictures.”
Blend colors and shades to create dimension. Another way to add depth is to blend different shades or colors together to achieve different values.
For darker areas, draw these lines closer together. To create highlights, leave more space between each line, or don’t draw any lines at all.
Then begin coloring and try not to worry about making mistakes; simply enjoy the process! There are plenty of options for coloring such as books, pages printed from the internet, and apps.
Especially when using colored pencils, it’s very important to gradually darken the color using multiple layers. Begin with gentle pressure to create light layers and with each additional layer press down slightly more until the color reaches the desired tone.
Coloring books are a great option to pick if you don’t want to create your own drawings or if you want to color a lot.
