THE LADDER METHOD
PLANNING YOUR COLOURS
ADDING DETAILSSmall detailed areas can be tricky to colour in and it can take a long time to colour around details, like the spots on the turtle. Instead of colouring the details first and then adding the background colour, which is typically what students want to do, I encourage them to colour the background first. Choose the colour for your background first, then colour the entire section (including the details). After the background is coloured, then choose another colour to layer on top for the details.
