“If you want a happy ending… that depends on where you stop your story.”

COLOR BY NUMBER:
Color by number books are a great way to learn and practice how to shade.
The work of figuring out the light/dark areas have been done for you.
However, sometimes the numbers show through the lighter colors--
I recently read a tip--and I would give credit if I actually remembered where I read it-
Tip--chose a 'number' and go through the picture and white out the numbers in all the areas to be colored. Then color in those areas before moving on to the next color.
Most coloring utensils will color over white out, but try a sample on scrap paper first.
The numbers will 'disappear' and won't show through!
