Thank you for visiting my Doll Coloring Pages site! I am so happy you’re here!
Looking For A Reason to Put Color Back Into Your Life?
Coloring helps you to relax by lowering your stress and anxiety levels. Who wouldn’t enjoy a few minutes of relief from another hectic day? Just a few minutes of coloring can re-energize your mind by removing some of the daily distractions. Negative thoughts melt away and are replaced by your idea of how you want your picture to turn out. Your creativity is allowed to express itself! And, that is what coloring is all about. Be aware not to allow yourself to rush or be pressured into coloring a certain way. You are not going to be judged if you make a mistake. The only person who needs to approve of your efforts is YOU! And with these Doll Coloring Pages, you can always simply print out another and start fresh!
When it comes to my coloring, I’ve always liked more realistic doll coloring pages that could actually look like my own dolls. To have more realism, I would have to keep more details in each picture. Using the lines and shading as a guide to show me where to use darker colors to enhance the details, coloring them will actually hide the lines so the entire picture looks hand drawn. Visit our Instructional Video page to see how professional artists use their sketch lines to guide them as they add color, shading and darken the lines. Even if you can’t draw very well, you can now use these coloring pages to create beautiful art pieces!
Here, on the left side, we have Lea’s “meet” dress. As you can see, there are details on her dress that I would never be able to recreate. I could not have kept them straight and evenly proportioned around her dress without the details to show me where to color.
See the blue bands with the seashells? I used the same blue to color the band then simply added more pressure with the same blue pencil to darken the lines of shells and make them show up. It looks almost like I drew the entire dress by hand because the gray shadows have disappeared behind my darker colored details.
Now, you may have noticed that I left the background white or blank. I did this so the focus to be on the dolls themselves. This way you can leave it white or add scenery you choose, such as a sunburst of color behind her, distant hills, trees or even a beach. I would love to see what you do with my Doll Coloring Pages! Please feel free to contact me: email@example.com with your final masterpieces and I will be more than happy to post them on this site for you.

Whether you’re a doll collector or an artist and colorist or simply just looking to add more color to your life, I sincerely hope you enjoy my pictures! I’ve tried my very best to capture the most beautiful view of each doll so that you will enjoy coloring them as much as I do. Some of their “portraits” are so realistic and their eyes so captivating that it is easy to escape your worries for a while and be in the moment as you color them.
Please Read Before You Purchase!
Because there are so many different printers out there, before you purchase any coloring pages, it is important to find out if you prefer a “LIGHT” version or a “DARK” version of our coloring pages. *For many printers like HP, their printed images tend to be light and you may need to order our dark coloring pages to compensate for that.
Please CLICK HERE to download and print up a single picture that is half “light” and half “dark”. *Keep in mind that the lighter the gray-scale lines are, the easier your colors will cover up all of those lines so your finished piece looks completely hand drawn. Another important aspect of lighter lines is it allows you to use lighter colors such as white and yellow without having black underneath.
Please print a TEST page and go ahead and color it a bit to see how your colors look over the lines and shading so you can decide if you prefer my DARK gray-scale (line-art) coloring pages or the LIGHT gray-scale coloring pictures. Another important aspect of lighter lines is that you can use lighter colors. Once you decide which type you will like to color, you can GO HERE TO PURCHASE them.
*I am not affiliated with any doll company or manufacturer. These doll coloring pages are from my own photographs of my own doll collection of various dolls.
For a FREE picture of American Girl Doll Lea to print and color, please go to our “Lea in Rollers” page. Or, if you would rather color pictures of YOUR OWN personal dolls, I can transform your own photographs into your very own custom gray-scale coloring pages.
