You may also find it helpful to filling in one distinct section completely before moving on to another section.
Example: if you want to create the appearance of shadow, try using a deeper blue (or red, or yellow, etc.) to create darker areas and a lighter blue for highlighted areas. This method can work with pencils, pens and markers.
Decide on a color scheme. You might, for example, choose to only use cool colors (blues, purples, and dark greens) or only use warm colors (reds, oranges, yellows, and light greens) for your project, or you may choose to mix many different hues together.
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.
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.
If you make a mistake while coloring using an app, it is much easier to remove than coloring with pencils or markers on paper.
