If you are not concerned about smudging, you can begin coloring wherever you’d like.
When using on loose sheets of paper, you may want to cover your work surface in newspaper depending on the coloring utensils you’ve chosen (markers may bleed through your paper and leave behind marks).
Choose the best place to begin coloring. Some drawing utensils (such as gel pens or markers) are more likely to smear than others.
Try shading by using a combination of light and dark tones to show where the aspects of your drawings that are highlighted. You can also try cross hatching by adding intersecting lines to create dimension.
You’ll find images that are stylized or cartoony and others that are more realistic. Older kids may prefer coloring realistic pictures of flora.
Save the image if you’d like to print it again in the future. In this case, right click on the image and click on “Save as.” This will bring up a window that allows you to select a location on your computer to save the picture.
