How do I get more colour into my sketchbook?

I'm comfortable with just drawing/sketching with a pencil but it's all grey. How would I add colour to it and what medias should I try out?

Thanks for viewing...

  • you could try using some water colours? 
  • or change the background colour and use charcoal and chalk use the charcoal for dark shading and the white for highlighting the brighter areas, 
  • or you could sketch using 2 colours......
  • or you could just try highlighting areas or leaving areas the shade of the paper or white instead of sketching all over them (leave the areas in the sketch white were most of the light is)

You could use some colour shading, painting with watercolours, make colourful collages out of scrap bits of coloured fabric and even wallpaper. Or you could use some colourful buttons. I made a collage for my front cover of my sketchbook, it makes it easy for the examiner to look at. The examiners love interesting things such as a collage!

Hope this helps. :)
