These coloring sheets aren't just for kids. When one applies value scales, shading, and blending in colored pencil, various optical effects can be created. Color and shading combinations can bring out dimensional properties, shimmering metallic effects and even the illusion of movement. My students always enjoy coloring these eye-popping designs.
Excellent to include adjacent to a value scale lesson or a Zentangle project. A great project to follow shading and color blending lessons. Perfect for practicing pencil techniques, color theory, counter-shading, contrast and extra credit work. These coloring pages can be used with colored pencils, markers, crayon, and other media as well. Even watercolors and watercolor pencils work great...particularly if one avoids using excess water and paints every other shape leaving dry paper between the painted areas. When dry, the intermediate spaces may be painted. This method keeps painted areas from bleeding into one another and also helps standard copy paper hold up to the wet media better and wrinkle less.
Op-Art Coloring Sheet product contains 100 different designs provided in letter-size as well as 11x17.
