Colouring Tutorial: Colour With Peta Hewitt

Hello adult coloring book addicts!

Today I want to show you a great YouTube tutorial from peta_hewitt that coloured_pencils_geek followed.

This tutorial is very amazing to watch. Although is very detailed it’s easy to follow. I believe you can learn so much from this videos and inspire yourself to be even better at coloring.

You’ll get a good amount of tips and tricks. How to choose colors and test them. Little tricks  how to apply them on the page. What pencils to use for shading. Which colors to use so that picture becomes alive.

For me, it was relaxing like watching a documentary on Sunday.

Here is the final stage of coloring page from coloured_pencils_geek:

So what do we need to get started?

Depending how much are you willing to give yourself to adult coloring world and how much can you afford this are the tools you’ll need:

As Peta Hewitt said you don’t actually need all the expensive stuff at the very beginning of your adult coloring journy. Her  methods will work for any type of pencils.
