Print the page in grayscale to make sure your child can color it. Printing in grayscale ensures that the image will be in black and white.
Blend colors and shades to create dimension. Another way to add depth is to blend different shades or colors together to achieve different values.
Choose the target location and type in a name for the picture. For example, call it something like “Santa Claus coloring picture.”
Coloring books are a great option to pick if you don’t want to create your own drawings or if you want to color a lot.
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.
If you think your utensils could cause unwanted smudging, it can be helpful either to color the center of your picture first and work your way outwards, or to start at the top of your page and work your way down. If you aren’t worried about smudging, begin coloring wherever you’d like.
