Mixed Medium Coloring Technique

Adult Coloring Book

One of our favorite coloring techniques is mixing mediums. Using a variety of coloring utensils on the same coloring page adds depth, dimension and vibrance! We used colored pencils, markers and watercolors. In this photo we started off outlining and coloring key elements with marker to help them stand out. Because colored pencils are best for light shading, we let them do the majority of work in filling in shapes with shades that complemented the darker marker details. Our third element, watercolor, played in perfectly for the soft texture we wanted to achieve for the soil.
