If you want to color while you are out and about and you don’t want the hassle of carrying a coloring book with you, then an app is the way to go. Search for and download your favorite coloring apps so that you can color at any time.
Find a surface to color on. If you are using a loose leaf coloring page you will need to find a hard surface to work on, while coloring books allow you more flexibility.
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 (permanent markers, for example, may bleed through your paper and leave stains).
Blend colors and shades to create dimension. Another way to add depth is to blend different shades or colors together to achieve different values.
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.
Choose a coloring book that appeals to you. Coloring books geared towards adults have enjoyed a recent surge in popularity, so you have many options to choose from.
