The days might be getting colder and wetter but believe it or not they’re actually going to start getting longer soon! These free printable winter coloring pages for adults should tide you over until the warm and dry sets back in… Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links.
If you asked me the ONE thing I’d love to be doing on a snow day, the answer would be staying indoors. And crafting… or better yet, coloring!
It may have taken many years for society to accept that fact that grown-ups can color too, but the world is adapting to us. And now I can spend my snow days coloring.
While there seems to be SO many Christmas coloring pages out there, there are much fewer for AFTER December, when the real winter sets in. A few fellow artists and I have gotten together and illustrated a few for you. I’ve also gathered a few more from around the web so you have your snow days set.
Of course, when you are done with these free printable winter coloring pages for adults, you can move on to coloring pages for year-round. You don’t NEED to color snow on a snow day – color what you’d like.
My favorite tools for coloring adult coloring pages:
For these free printable winter coloring pages, you should definitely give gel pens a go! Glitters, milky colors, and metallics are some what unique to gel pens, allowing you to capture some of the sparkle of the snow.
You may think that snow is white so there won’t be much to color, but you’ll want to get plenty of blues for shading.
Prismacolor Premier pencils have a soft core and are perfect for blending, which you’ll want to do plenty of on these free printable winter coloring pages. A blender pencil completes the job, without laying on extra pigment.
