As you add layer upon layer to create the animal fur keep in mind the roundness of the shapes and the areas of light and dark. Start with a thin, watery version of the color and darken it as you work. Be careful not to end up darkening everything. Let some of each layer show through. The final stages of the painting will show detail. Use a very small detail brush and paint in some hair or hair strands. A lot of times, just a few details of hair is all that is needed to send the viewer the message of fur. Don't forget to add whiskers, final highlights and shadows. Have fun and enjoy learning to paint animals.
Characters that children love, like Pokemon, Dora, Barbie, Thomas the train, Scooby the Dog, Donald Duck etc and many more can be easily accessed and printed out for them to add their own imagination of colors. Coloring can be a family activity as well. It is one of the best ways to spend time creatively with your child and bond well. Thus you can spend a relaxing time that is a brain tonic for your child too!
Coloring books are a thing of the past. Kids today aren't as thrilled by a basic coloring book as children a generation ago. That is because these children have been spoiled by all the fantastic new methods of coloring using the computer or with fancy markers and pens. While you might get away with a coloring book and crayons for a long car trip, don't expect your school age children to sit quietly at the table coloring pictures the old fashioned way − there is a something better around, and they know it.
