No matter what colors you ultimately choose, having a rough idea of how you’d like your completed piece to look will help ensure that you are satisfied with your final product.
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.
Coloring books are inexpensive and they can be purchased from bookstores, department stores, or online. There is a wide variety of themes to choose from depending on your interests including comics, movies, nature, and animals.
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.
Choose a surface to color on. If you are using a loose leaf coloring page you will want to find a hard surface to work on, while coloring books allow you more flexibility.
When using coloring books, you can use your lap as a coloring surface if you’d like to draw while in bed on the couch, for example.
