I decided to give coloring another try, since, apparently, I was enjoying myself too much with learning to tat and felt like tormenting myself.
I couldn’t take the torment of a physical coloring book and colored pencils, however, so I decided to download a color-by-number app.
Coloring on the app was a bazillion times better than physically coloring, but I didn’t get to make any creative choices (except selecting a design), nor did I get to learn and hone any skills. You know what? That is not true. I did get to learn and hone skills.
It took a few tries just to figure out how to get the thing to work. Then I honed how I looked for the next space to color. I learned I had to enlarge the image to see where all of the colors go. I also learned that I really enjoy watching the animated progression provided after completion that shows how I moved through my coloring efforts.
All in all, I enjoyed the experience.
And that’s my bit of creativity for today.
