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.
Vary your strokes to add depth to your drawing. Crosshatching is a popular and fairly simple way to create depth using variation in strokes. Crosshatching is done by drawing overlapping sets of lines at right angles (this pattern should look mesh-like).
Blend colors and shades to create dimension. Another way to add depth is to blend different shades or colors together to achieve different values.
Open the image and select “print” to print out the coloring page. When you click on “print,” the computer will bring up a menu page allowing you to select a printer and choose how many copies of the image you’d like to print.
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.
Choose the target location and type in a name for the picture. For example, call it something like “Santa Claus coloring picture.”
