You need to invest in your coloring hobby to reap the rewards! I don’t mean you need to go spend your life savings on the most expensive art supplies or furnish part of your house with an art studio, I mean spend the time to allow yourself to become better at coloring. Most things in life take practice and coloring is no exception.
Make sure you warm your hands and wrists up before coloring by doing some simple exercises. Rotate your wrist ten times clockwise, then repeat anti-clockwise. Clench and stretch your fingers as you unclench your fist – do this ten times to get the blood flowing to your hands and finger-tips. This will help avoid your hand cramping as you color. Take regular breaks and repeat this exercise, I try not to color for more than 20 minutes without shaking the stiffness out of my hands!
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.
