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.
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!
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.
