When you are coloring, make sure you have a good light source so that you aren’t straining your eyes. During the day try and find yourself a nice spot by a window with plenty of natural light, alternatively invest in a daylight LED lamp so that you can have a decent bright light to color under day and night. Some of these lamps even have in-built magnifying glasses which will help you when coloring detailed pages, but will also put less strain on your eyes.
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!
As well as finding somewhere you can relax, make sure that you are also looking after your eyes, wrist and back when you are coloring. Being hunched over a coloring book for a couple of hours may produce a beautiful work of art, but if you aren’t careful you could end up straining your eye-sight, back and wrists!
