By On Feb 08, 2019 Coloring Pages
A coloring page is a marathon, not a sprint! Coloring is a great activity to fit in-between other jobs in your day – waiting for the kids from school? Spend 20 minutes coloring. Got the house to yourself for 30 minutes before your friends drop by? Start that new coloring page!
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.
