More than just a hobby, colouring is a part of an holistic therapy.
Your choice of colours say a lot about yourself and your mood.
Filling up shapes requires for concentration.
Spending hours on an artwork is relaxing.
Admiring your own creation afterwards is satisfying.
Before printing, choose carefully the paper you are going to work on.
Some types are better for pencils, others for painting…
To create harmony, start by choosing up to 6 colours only and use them for your whole artwork.
Be careful to fill up the shapes without going over the thin lines. To make it easier, start with the lightest colours, then progress increasingly darker ones.
Don't be shy. Be adventurous.
Try to ignore some of the lines or add new ones.
Try new juxtapositions of colours that you are not familiar with. Gold or glittery pencils? Stickers?
