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.
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.
Look for “coloring pages with animals” for giraffes, elephants, or zebras. Kids can either recreate the colors and patterns of animals they’ve seen at a zoo, or they can imaginatively think up new shades and patterns to color the animals.
You’ll find images that are stylized or cartoony and others that are more realistic. Older kids may prefer coloring realistic pictures of flora.
Color along the lines first and work your way in. Coloring along the edges of a distinct area first and then working your way work way in will help prevent you from coloring outside of the lines.
If you make a mistake while coloring using an app, it is much easier to remove than coloring with pencils or markers on paper.
