Coloring Tips to Create a Work of Art
The line drawings in the Coloring Experience book are renditions of pieces of art that hang in numerous homes and businesses throughout the world. The drawings in the coloring book were not signed by the artist, allowing you to color and sign your own unique masterpiece. Although watercolor pencils are suggested, you can use color pencils, crayons, gel pens, highlighters, or markers. The artist has already shaded the areas of the drawings to provide depth and dimension.
- First, let your inner artist emerge and channel your creativity.
- You can experiment by layering colors.
- Color the lighter areas first. This will prevent over-coloring and will make it easier when coloring the darker areas.
- The more layers of color you add to your drawing, the more vibrant and intense the colors will appear. If you want the colors to be lighter or darker, color by controlling the pressure of your strokes on the paper. Colors can be layered to make different interesting hues. For example, for a leaf's three dimensional look, layer yellow over a dark green color.
- Now go ahead, color, and sign your masterpiece.
