Humility Coloring Page
Have you ever tried your hand at coloring and ended up making a page full of nothing but Hype? Do you ever get tired of looking at the same pictures day after day? Are you embarrassed that people make fun of your page, no matter how good your coloring is? If any of these things sounds familiar and you want to get out of the "joke" mode and actually do something meaningful with your coloring, it may be time to try a H humility coloring page.
Humility is a theme that's been used a lot lately. Music has played a big part in it. People have been wearing special t-shirts or arm bands that read, "Hear me roar." The songs themselves are not always positive; they can be sad or inappropriate, depending on who's singing or what the message is. But what they do have in common is that their songs or messages are sung or written in a language that's easy on the ears - or the eyes.
A typical page will start out the same way most do. You'll draw or color a basic shape, and then work from top to bottom to produce your message. You may use your own words to explain your idea or just use a cute quote from a favorite book. Sometimes the colors will be a simple wash of a lighter color. Sometimes they'll be a more elaborate painting or drawing.
Once your finished page, the colors are applied in small batches. You use a certain amount of paint and allow it to dry before you move on to the next color. Most artists start with a few colors that have been worked on and ready for the final stage, but you can use as many or as few colors as you like. It's all up to you.
Another key element of a true page that promotes humility is the way it's framed. When you look through a typical page, you'll usually find that there are either balloons (for elevation), pictures (to emphasize the size and shape) or a block of color arranged to frame an object. This creates a visual cue for the viewer that helps them to focus on the humility coloring page itself.
For this type of painting, it's important to choose simple and subdued colors. You'll want your balloons and block of color to be subtle so as not to distract from the main subject of your page. You can use blues, greens and even yellows for lighter tones. You can use several tones, but keep them fairly simple and less blended together so as not to overwhelm the page.
As you complete each panel, use your final color to give your final touches. This will be a good opportunity to highlight any special effects or details that you used in your paint stroke. You can apply highlights and other effects at the end, but it's best to use them sparingly. If you do add too many at the end, it can look distracting and jarring. Just make sure you've covered your highlights before transitioning into the next panel.
A great way to create this effect visually is to use a contrasting color between the balloons and the final subject. It can also help to alternate between using lighter and darker tones of one color. This is another easy way to keep your page from becoming boring or repetitive. The key to creating a visually appealing page with your humble art project is in being creative and observing the different things that naturally happen when you use different paints and techniques. The more you practice, the better you'll get at creating these kinds of visual aids.
