It is best to hold a colored pencil with your fingers near the tip. This will let you exert more pressure on the paper, and you can get more control over the strokes. Artists hold pencils this way to add finer details to their pictures. 

However, if you hold it near the middle or the end, then you will not be able to exert a lot of pressure, and the color on the paper will be lighter.
