By On Sep 08, 2018 Adult Coloring
Coloring in many different directions is a great habit to get into. However, there are still ways to hide your pencil marks while using linear strokes. If you plan accordingly, you can use linear strokes in one area, and then use more linear strokes in a different direction to go back over your pencil marks. This technique is called cross hatching.
Getting bold, even colors with colored pencils can be difficult, even with Prismacolors or Faber Castell pencils. Beginners often find that their large back-and-forth strokes can be hard to hide. Different areas meet up at awkward angles, and can look patchy up against one another. There are certain techniques you can use to help solve this problem.
To start, hold your pencil as you would if you were writing. There should be a little bit of space between your fingers and the pencil tip. As you color, you may notice your grip starting to tighten. This will end up causing you some pain in the long run, and you will notice your hand cramping up after a while. Remember to keep your grip controlled but relaxed - you may not be able to color as fast, but you will be able to last much longer without any cramps or sore fingers. In most cases, coloring is a marathon, not a sprint.
