Use varying amounts of pressure to create the illusion of shadows. This technique, referred to as shading, adds depth and dimension to your picture. Simply vary the amount of pressure that you are apply with your coloring utensil depending on how light or dark you’d like a given area to be.
Decide what colors you are going to use. For example, you might want to only use cool colors (blues, purples, and dark greens) or only use warm colors (reds, oranges, yellows, and light greens). Or, you might prefer to use all of the colors of the rainbow in your picture.
You may also find it helpful to filling in one distinct section completely before moving on to another section.
Color along the lines first and work your way in. Coloring along the edges of a distinct area first and then working your way work way in will help prevent you from coloring outside of the lines.
Search for pictures of flowers and trees if your child likes nature. Search for something like “outdoors children’s coloring pictures.”
You are not necessarily limited to actual coloring books. Tons of printable coloring pages are available online and many of them are free.
