Tips For Coloring Columbus Day

What colors should I use for Columbus Day coloring pages?

Columbus Day coloring pages typically reflect the voyage of Christopher Columbus. For the images of ships, use dark brown for the ships, white or light blue for the sails, and deeper blue for the ocean. You might use yellow and orange for the sunset or sunrise on the sea. For Columbus himself, depict him in typical 15th-century clothing – a hat (usually red), a cape (blue or purple), and a tunic (yellow or brown).

How can I add more details and a touch of realism to my Columbus Day coloring?

You can start by differentiating the tones of the ocean, using darker shades to suggest depth and lighter ones near the ship to show light reflection. You can also add some texture to the ship by shading the wooden parts, and use light blue, gray, and white for the sail to simulate the wind effect. When coloring the characters, remember to use flesh-tone colors and apply some shading to provide more depth and realism.

What are some important symbolic elements that I should incorporate in my Columbus Day coloring page?

When depicting Columbus Day, you can incorporate elements such as the three ships Columbus sailed – the NiΓ±a, Pinta and Santa MarΓ­a. You might also consider including old maps or a compass to emphasize the nature of the voyage. The cross and the flag of Spain were also deeply symbolic during Columbus’s voyages, as they represented the religious and national motivations behind the exploration.

What are some interesting facts about Columbus Day that I could incorporate into my coloring pages?

While Columbus Day is mostly celebrated in the United States, it commemorates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the Americas, on October 12, 1492. Columbus was an Italian explorer, but the expedition was sponsored by Spain. Most interestingly, Columbus believed until his death that he had reached Asia, not realizing he had in fact discovered a whole new continent. Including elements such as Italian or Spanish flags, vintage European maps, or even mistaking Asian elements for the American ones could make novel additions to your coloring pages.
