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.
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.
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.
Decide on a color scheme. You might, for example, choose to only use cool colors (blues, purples, and dark greens) or only use warm colors (reds, oranges, yellows, and light greens) for your project, or you may choose to mix many different hues together.
Try shading by using a combination of light and dark tones to show where the aspects of your drawings that are highlighted. You can also try cross hatching by adding intersecting lines to create dimension.
If you think your utensils could smudge, either 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.
