The first book we purchased had 39 pictures of mandala drawings. A small box of basic coloring pencils started our adventure. We worked with the primary colors of red, orange, blue, green, violet. black, white, and a few other tints which were in the small box. The initial starting stage began with the techniques of our elementary school years. The instructions included the color wheel which we started paying attention to after getting bored with the basic colors.
I also found out that there are no rules when it comes to coloring, color outside the lines; it is surprising a way of breaking the rules, and it feels so good. There are no coloring police to arrest you for breaking the color inside the lines rule. Nor do you have to follow the instructions and use the suggested colors. It is a release that is outstanding.
Children are fascinated by colors. Since they are relatively new to this world, and are exceedingly curious and perceptive, they consider each new hue and shade to be exquisite and exceptional, unlike us, who have learned to take all the colors in the world for granted, and dont even look twice at any new shade as such, believing it to be just another part of the surrounding environment.
