Use a color palette to bring your coloring to life

I would love to say I am a wonderful artist and coloring comes natural.  Regretfully I am a left brain person and my creativity is something I have to work at it.

It was whilst I was reading some of the reviews on Amazon about the Enchanted Forest coloring book and a couple of people were commenting on how many leaves were in the book that I had an idea.   The color of trees and their leaves change with the seasons and I started to wonder if it was possible to capture this in my coloring.

I discovered these amazing color palettes on Canva Design School’s web site and I matched up my Faber Castell Watercolor Pencils. I was originally going to color the same picture twice and then I discovered the cover of the Enchanted Forest and used this.
