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.
While coloring is usually regarded as a solitary activity, there are plenty of coloring groups available where like-minded people share ideas, techniques, and support. Use social media to find a coloring group to join or ask at your local art club or library. If you want a darker color, try applying multiple layers.
Regardless of the colors you choose, having a rough idea of how you’d like your completed piece to look can help you create a picture you’re satisfied with.
Coloring your own pictures is a great way to get creative and to have the freedom to color any design that you want. Trace your favorite pictures or use your imagination to create cartoons, patterns, lettering, or still life drawings.
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.
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.
