If you haven’t done so you might wish to try your coloring techniques on a new hobby called coloring for adults. Its popularity started out as means of occupying your idle time when traveling or waiting your turn for an appointment at the doctor’s or dentist’s office.
This new craze has gone beyond its use for doodling or a kind of activity for comfort, or an activity for the older. Hobbyists are finding this to be a fun activity and are using their finished art pieces in craft jobs.
Individuals that are contemplating art or find that they have a possible or interest in learning how to draw and colour find this new hobby interest is assisting and building their confidence to progress their art training.
The first book we purchased had 39 images of mandala drawings. A little box of basic coloring pens started our experience. We worked together with the primary colors of orange, red, blue, green, violet. Black, white, and a few different tints that were in the little box. The initial starting stage began with the techniques of our elementary school years. The instructions included the color wheel which we started paying attention to after getting bored with the basic colours.
The simple act of coloring is the beginning of gaining tinting knowledge with personal experiences of school day memories and trial and error. As you follow tips for cool and warm colors one starts to understand how colors offer contrast or compliment each other. The psychological side advantages of tranquility and instant rewards encourage learning.
The mandala drawings, which are circles filled with geometric patterns, alter their look with selected colors. There may be three of you coloring and every one of you will have a unique kaleidoscopic view because of the color choices made by each person.
If you are anything like me, I started downloading free examples offered by artists situated Online. Selecting landscaping, animals, people, and objects allowed me to experiment and gain a better understanding of colours.
The advantage of working with colored pencils:
Clean and dry
Buy coloring books
Download from the online
Create your own drawings or drawings
No added equipment or accessories
There are different sizes of boxed colored pens available. We started with a small box and learned how to combine colors to increase tint variety. Later we purchased larger boxes for more variety, but still found that we like mixing colours to get the hue that’s just right for the project.
Coloring is a fun hobby; attempt it, you may like it.
