Tips For Coloring Maltese
What colors should I use for a Maltese coloring page?
Maltese dogs are known for their gorgeous white coats, so you would primarily be using different shades of white and grey. If you want to depict one in a realistic manner, you might also use soft yellows, light browns or blues for shadows. Their eyes and nose are black while their ears can carry a slight hue of light tan or lemon.
How can I add more detail and realism to my Maltese coloring?
One of the defining features of the Maltese is its long, flowing coat. Use different hues of white and grey to give depth and texture to the fur. You could also add a slight shine to the coat to make it look silky. Concentrate on making their eyes expressive, it’s part of their charm. Adding a hint of pink to their mouth and ears can also make your coloring look more lifelike.
Are there any remarkable features of the Maltese I should pay attention to while coloring?
Yes, Maltese are small dogs but are known for their long and silky coat. Their fur is usually grown out long and sweeps the ground. They also have a distinctive black nose and dark, round eyes. Their ears are droopy and have long hair, which should be remembered when coloring. Depending on the accuracy, some artists might want to depict a typical topknot on their head which is used to gather hair that might otherwise fall in their eyes.
Can you provide some interesting facts about Maltese that I could incorporate into my art?
Yes, Maltese are an ancient breed, they have been known by a variety of names in different countries throughout history. In fact, they are said to have been mentioned in the writings of Aristotle. These little dogs were believed to have healing powers and were often placed on the pillows of ill patients. This history of closeness to humans might be reflected in their expressive eyes in your artwork. Also, consider including common accessories like ribbons or bows, as Maltese owners often adorn their pets with these.
