Tips For Coloring Nativity Scenes
What colors should I use for a nativity scene coloring page?
A nativity scene contains many elements therefore a range of colors could be used. However, traditional colors you could consider include browns and grays for the stable and manger, a pale hue for baby Jesus, tans for Mary and Joseph with blue for Mary’s mantle, yellow for stars, and an assortment of colors for the Three Wise Men’s robes. It’s your own artistic interpretation so feel free to use colors that you think best fit the scene.
How can I add depth and perspective to my nativity scene coloring page?
One way to add depth and perspective to your nativity coloring is to shade the foreground elements with darker colors and use lighter colors for the background scenes. For instance, use darker shades in the stable and on the figures, while keeping the night sky a light blue or even white with a bright yellow star to lead the eyes towards the main focus, the baby Jesus.
What are some notable features of the nativity scene that I can highlight in my coloring?
The nativity scene is known for its simplicity and humility so highlighting the stark cowshed or stable, the manger made of straw where Jesus was born, and modestly dressed Mary and Joseph could depict this scene accurately. Additionally, the Star of Bethlehem, the angels, and the three Wise Men with their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh are key elements that can be brought to the fore.
What are some interesting facts about the nativity that I can incorporate into my art?
After Jesus’ birth, the first visitors were shepherds, who were considered as people of low status. This idea of humble beginnings could be depicted in your coloring page. Also, the three Wise Men were from different regions and presented gifts symbolizing Christ’s future. Gold for a king, incense for a deity, and myrrh, an anointment oil often used in burials which signified his mortality. These elements can add a layer of cultural and historical depth to your artwork.
