Tips For Coloring Medieval
What colors should I use for medieval coloring pages?
Medieval coloring pages often depicts various scenes such as knights, castles, royalty, and peasants. Rich, deep colors such as reds, blues, and purples were often used for royal and noble garments, while earth tones like browns, greens, and grays would be appropriate for peasants or landscapes. Armor can be colored in shades of gray or silver, and stone castles would also be grays.
How can I add more detail and realism to my medieval coloring pages?
To add more depth and realism, consider the textures and materials in the scene. Armor, for example, would likely have a metallic shine, while fabrics such as velvet or silk may appear softer and richer in color. Shading can represent deep crevices in stones or folds of cloth. For landscapes, incorporating natural color gradations can create a more realistic depiction.
What are some remarkable features of the medieval period I should pay attention to while coloring?
Architecture, fashion, and heraldry are all distinctive features of the medieval period. Gothic architecture, for example, contained detailed stone work and pointed arches. Clothing was heavily layered and often decorated with intricate patterns or heraldic symbols, so these may require precise coloring. Furthermore, knights bore their family emblems on their shields, which can be a unique, vibrant detail to include.
Can you provide some interesting facts about the medieval period that I could incorporate into my art?

Plus, the societal hierarchy from this era, like the clearly defined roles of royalty, clergy, nobles, knights, merchants and peasants, could be represented in your scenes.
