By On Nov 07, 2018 Coloring Pages
Just remember, you don’t have to finish your coloring page in one sitting. If you are looking to produce the best finish possible to your coloring page then don’t rush it! Spend multiple sittings, or carve out a couple of hours, but just breathe and take your coloring slow. You aren’t working to a deadline and there is no boss to please (other than you!). The only rule you have is to relax, lose yourself in the page and lay down some color.
I find that to really enjoy my coloring I need to connect with the page I am working on. When I am looking at starting a new coloring page a few things can influence my decision. Sometimes, I can be thinking about a particular color style or palette that I have seen that I would like to try out on a page, for instance psychedelic coloring. On other occasions when I have had a bad day at work, I’ll want to zone out whilst I color; for these times I often find myself reaching for a mandala. There is something about coloring my way through those circles of pattern that really help my mind to switch off!
From here you can start to think about more advanced techniques like shading, burnishing and blending colors and begin to work with some of the tools that the coloring professionals use. Remember, these techniques take time and practice to master – don’t expect to be producing masterpieces over night, after all it took Michelangelo 4 years to finish the Sistine Chapel so give yourself at least a good couple of years of practice to produce your first coloring masterpiece!
