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.
Blend colors and shades to create dimension. Another way to add depth is to blend different shades or colors together to achieve different values.
Choose the best place to begin coloring. Some drawing utensils (such as gel pens or markers) are more likely to smear than others.
All you need to do is conduct an online search for the type of pages your child likes, then print them out with a few simple steps.
If you want to make sure that you get the colors right, get a scrap piece of paper and try drawing swatches with the same colored pencil using different amounts of pressure. You can use the swatches as a reference point to decide how much pressure you want to use while coloring.
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).
