To tell you the truth, I am a big frustrated with New York. I mean, a city doesn’t have to be bland, does it? You can see some Mediterranean and other old cities have beautiful colored home, cobblestones, and arches….

 

So I decided to take that frustration out with this adult coloring page that gives a peek into a beautiful city with cobblestones and such. The wrought iron gate is intricate, and the wall is perfectly peeled in spots to reveal the stone underneath the paint.

This adult coloring page presents a challenge: you have a brick arch, exposed stonework, and a cobblestone road. And you need to color each so that it has its own character. 

Giving the brick dimension was easy. Since you all have been asking for a little bit of demos and tutorials for working these pages, I left the process showing on this image.

I used Prismacolor pencils and started with a flat layer of Scarlet Red. I added a bit of shading on the edges of the bricks in Tuscan Red. That was followed up with a layer of Goldenrod to add a brownish/yellowish tinge to the whole thing. I highlighted the centers with a bit of cream and added some yellow accents in the areas that were exposed.

I did similar processes of base colors, shading, and highlighting for the other areas, except in other color schemes. In general, it helps to show some color outside of what the flat color you’d imagine it to be is. For example, the gray bricks have some peach in them. And I ALWAYS add yellow to my foliage and plants.

I also gave this page a shot using markers. I discovered a new shading trick with markers: use a cheap washable set (such as Crayola Super Tips) which have less rich, more transparent colors on top of a better artist-quality set, such as Staedtler Noris Club. You can see the cobblestone – I added some texture with the Staedtler markers, and colored over it with Crayolas.
