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.
Use your time coloring to enjoy being in the moment and focusing on the task at hand. Try not to worry about making mistakes or if the colors don’t look right. Remember that the purpose of coloring is to enjoy being creative. You can always start on a new picture or page if you need to.
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. You may still find it easier to have a more flat and solid surface to work on, though.
If you think your utensils could cause unwanted smudging, it can be helpful either to 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. If you aren’t worried about smudging, begin coloring wherever you’d like.
Then begin coloring and try not to worry about making mistakes; simply enjoy the process! There are plenty of options for coloring such as books, pages printed from the internet, and apps.
Coloring is a great activity that can be enjoyed by children and adults alike. It’s relaxing, inexpensive, and an ideal way to get creative without needing many supplies. To begin coloring, choose what you want to color and the tools that you want to use.
