Color however you feel is best. You can experiment with different designs, colors, and patterns, or keep it simple depending on what works for you.
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.
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. You may still find it easier to have a more flat and solid surface to work on, though.
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.
Coloring apps are great because you have a wide variety of different options to color, without having to carry around multiple coloring books, pages, and tools.
Choose the best place to begin coloring. Some drawing utensils (such as gel pens, colored pens, or markers) are more likely to smear than others.
