I've not used coloured pencils in ages, but maybe on a test piece of paper, try doing it lightly, but over and over again to build the colour up? If you're light with it it won't leave harsh lines. Also, blunt it down a bit - the sharper the pencil, the more likely it is to leave lines into the paper itself, let alone in the colouring. Also try overlapping circles, kind of like a spirograph. If you want to avoid lines, try not to be heavy-handed.

 

Hope that's helpful! Like I said, I've not used coloured pencils in ages since the switch to markers and then digital. You kind of make me want to give it another try!
