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.
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.
Regardless of the type of tool that you choose, look for a set that has a wide variety of different colors so that you can experiment with different techniques such as shading.
Use your time coloring to enjoy being in the moment and focusing on the task at hand. Try not to worry about making mistakes or if the colors don’t look right. Remember that the purpose of coloring is to enjoy being creative. You can always start on a new picture or page if you need to.
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.
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.
