Individuals that are considering art or find they have a potential or interest in learning how to draw and color find this new hobby interest is helping and building their confidence to progress their art training.
The first book we bought had 39 images of mandala drawings. A small box of basic coloring pencils started our experience. We worked with the primary colors of red, orange, blue, green, Wildlife Control, purple. Black, white, and a few different tints that were in the little box. The first starting stage began with the techniques of our elementary school years. The instructions included the color wheel that we began paying attention to after getting bored with the basic colors.
As you follow suggestions for cool and warm colors one begins to understand how colors provide contrast or compliment each other. The emotional side benefits of tranquility and immediate rewards encourage learning.
The mandala drawings, which are circles full of geometric patterns, alter their appearance with selected colors. There may be three of you coloring and every one of you will have a different kaleidoscopic view due to the color choices made by each person.
If you’re anything like me, I started downloading free examples offered by artists located Online. Selecting landscaping, animals, people, and objects allowed me to experiment and gain a better understanding of colors.
The advantage of working with colored pencils:
Clean and dry
Purchase coloring books
Download from the online

No added accessories or equipment
there are various sizes of boxed colored pens available. We started with a little box and learned how to mix colors to boost tint variety. Later we bought larger boxes to get more variety, but still found that we enjoy mixing colors to get the hue that is just right for the project.
Coloring is a fun hobby; attempt it, you may like it.
