As with many Artists, it started for me as a child, the innate need to create.
Perhaps, your recent box of new colored pencils and a coloring book was your first step, all nice and sharpened. Their newness was as inviting as a fresh jar of peanut butter.
In this digital age, the touch of paper and feel of a real pencil drawing a textured line across the page has even more thrill. You know it too. Sitting there getting lost in the colors as time passes and stress melts away. Because I have seen the thrill of that creative moment in so many of my students, I wanted to share what they have learned with you.
Here is a quick and easy tip: When coloring, draw in tight circles for the best, smoothest coverage. More on rich creamy peanut butter-like coverage to come. Let me know how it goes.
