If you download and save several images at once, you won’t have to repeat the entire process the next time your child wants an image to color. You can just print one of the already-downloaded images.
These kinds of pictures can spark children’s imaginations by letting them soak up knowledge of how the natural world is structured.
Vary your strokes to add depth to your drawing. Crosshatching is a popular and fairly simple way to create depth using variation in strokes. Crosshatching is done by drawing overlapping sets of lines at right angles (this pattern should look mesh-like).
Use varying amounts of pressure to create the illusion of shadows. This technique, referred to as shading, adds depth and dimension to your picture. Simply vary the amount of pressure that you are apply with your coloring utensil depending on how light or dark you’d like a given area to be.
Choose a coloring book that appeals to you. Coloring books geared towards adults have enjoyed a recent surge in popularity, so you have many options to choose from.
Color however you feel is best. You can experiment with different designs, colors, and patterns, or keep it simple depending on what works for you.
