Don’t worry if your child colors in the animal figures in a way that doesn’t seem realistic. Kids can sometimes make “incorrect” or weird coloring choices, but they often have their own reasons for doing so.
Coloring books are fun for all ages. Although coloring is not generally considered to be very difficult, there are a number of methods and tips that you can use to help make your experience more enjoyable and successful.
If you download and save several images at once, you won’t have to repeat the entire process the next time your child wants an image to color. You can just print one of the already-downloaded images.
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.
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.
Start from the outside of a section and work your way towards the center as you color. Try to color in the same direction at all times if possible, so that the strokes look neat and tidy.
