Most of the pictures will require shading of the petal colors and perhaps the other colors to look nice. You can look at the full color reproductions shown on the front and the back covers to see what the shading could look like. You don't have to use the exact same colors for the images, try different colors. This coloring book doesn't have all the individual colors outlined by colors like my first two books, There is more room for the colorist to do their own shading.
Still many of the colors are just slightly different, so it is best to used a large selection of colored pencils to be able to find an appropriate color, and it helps to "layer" two different colors to get a better match. For instance, coloring a purple over a red will give a darker more scarlet red.
