Tips For Coloring Squirrels
What colors should I use for a squirrel coloring page?
Squirrels come in various colors depending on their species. Eastern Gray Squirrels, for instance, are usually gray with white bellies. Red Squirrels, as the name suggests, have reddish coats. However, you can also find black, brown, and even albino squirrels. Having pencils or crayons in shades of brown, gray, black, and white will help you capture a realistic color.
How can I add more detail and realism to my squirrel coloring?
To add more detail to your squirrel coloring, you’d want to mimic the texture of a squirrel’s fur. Use quick, short strokes rather than a solid fill to get the effect of fluffy fur. Use darker shades for outlining and shading, especially around the eyes, ears, and paws. Also, remember a squirrel’s tail is its most prominent feature. Make it bushy and fluffy.
What are some distinctive features of a squirrel that I should highlight while coloring?
Squirrels have quite a few distinctive features. Their large bushy tail is perhaps the most notable. Also, they have very sharp claws for climbing trees and large eyes on the sides of their head which are excellent for observing their environment. Highlighting these features while coloring will certainly make your image stand out.
What are some interesting facts about squirrels I could incorporate into my art?
You might like to know squirrels plant thousands of new trees each year simply by forgetting where they bury their acorns. Also, a squirrel’s teeth never stop growing. In winter, they stay warm by adding layers of fats and their fur thickens up. Including one of these facts could make your coloring page more interactive and educational.
