Although my girls love our Crayola and Prang coloring pencils, I always reach for my Prismacolor professional quality soft lead pencils. The richness of color is unbeatable. In my coloring example I used only one orange and yellow pencil but was able to get a wide variety of color depth by simply applying more or less pressure to the pencil! I love how this looks on the overlapping scales.
I also used this technique within the the letters by applying more pressure to the bottom half of the orange text and less pressure at the top (barely “kiss” the page with your pencil for the lightest color). I love the gradient effect it creates. Prismacolor pencils also allow for color blending which I used in the blue areas.
Remember you can use this Father’s Day coloring page free printable as a Father’s Day card or, by adding a simple frame, dad has a sweet gift to hang on his wall at home or the office. Be sure to share this post with your friends!
