By On Oct 11, 2018 Coloring Pages
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!
Start your coloring journey in small steps, think about block coloring using pen or pencil. This will give you the basic skills of applying color to the page and get you comfortable with the techniques to control your pen or pencils and stick within the lines. Then treat yourself to a refresher on color palettes, remind yourself about the color wheel and how certain colors work better together than others. Even take a look at how different colors can evoke different moods and feelings when used in a coloring page.
When you color try to avoid hunching over a table. Instead, use a large hardback book to prop your page up at an angle or if you have a study you can even treat yourself to a drawing board. Make sure you support your back in a good chair. When you have been lost in your coloring for a while, make sure that when you break to stretch out your hands you also do some simple back stretching exercises too. Place your hands behind your head, lean back and stretch your lower back.
