Louise Friederich shared a great Owl themed page with us, if it is inspiration you are looking for this piece has it in bucket loads. There is a lovely choice of colors using different shades of the same color on the circular mandalas that surround the centre of the design and the black background and yellow stars really lift the design from the page.
Luke Putnam showed how coloring pencils can give a really nice texture to a design which really suits this delightful garden scene. The choice to use two colors on the flowers, with a darker hue for the rear and center petals, really makes them leap from the page and those cherries look good enough to eat! There is a nice use of red and orange pencil blending on the roof of the arbor too. Our article Exploring Pencil Shading gave a nice walkthrough of how to use some simple pencil shading techniques.
Jacinta Bernardo shared her finished piece from the free coloring book sample we have for you to download, print and color! Jacinta has used great contrast in colors to make a striking lizard of this design. The use of a shaded green backdrop shows that you do not have to limit yourself to only coloring within the lines.
Emily Scott’s vibrant lion demonstrates the extra punch that coloring with pen can add to a page. This is flat coloring at it’s best, using shades of a red color and some lovely contrast with the blue and purple to make this lion pounce from the paper. This is a lovely piece of work and you can almost feel the breath of that lion on your face when you look at the extra dimension Emily’s color choices have added to this design.
