It's not you; it's your technique

 Learn how to color realistic shadows and add dimensional shade with Copic Markers and colored pencils. | #copic #coloredpencil #coloring #artlessons #realisticcoloring

The problem with most marker lessons and tutorials is that they're based on the copy-cat theory.

"I'll show you how I colored this project. By watching me color, you'll be able to do it too!"

But a monkey-see, monkey do style demonstration only works for that one image. Eventually you hit a brick wall where you've seen it all and understand nothing.

Workshop classes fill the gaps!

We're learning the basics of realism! It's more than how to do something, learn why. The why is a far more valuable lesson because you can apply it to all of your coloring projects. 

No more guessing where the color goes!

Add natural shadows to maximize realism!

Join Amy for a fun shadow lesson that is guaranteed to add more realism to your coloring!

We see shadows every day but very few of us really look at them closely. As a result, most people color shadows based on what they assume rather than reality.

If you’re not coloring real shadows, it’s no wonder your shadows look fake!

Online course includes:

  • 2 hours of video time

  • Technique Deep Dive videos provides a reality check on the true color and color value of real shadows.

  • extended cut demonstration videos with instructional commentary

  • helpful lesson aids including photo references, guide to shade/shadow, and color guides

If you can blend well and color with confidence, you can learn to apply these basic skills to something more than cartoon stamps. Try Vanilla style instruction and you’ll be amazed at what you can do!

Marker Painting Workshops offer skill-building instruction

Designed for intermediate to advanced students- Once you have mastered the basic blend with Copics, we can build upon that skill to increase your realism.

Ink & Hydrangea is an intermediate to advanced level class which does not cover beginner blending skills.

Every class covers a new art-based technique or concept.

Practice your new technique on the class image but apply the lesson to all your future coloring projects.

Marker Painting Workshops are perfect for:

  • Moderate beginners who already have basic Copic blending skills

  • Intermediate colorers who are tired of "monkey see, monkey do" classes

  • Experienced colorers looking to challenge their current skills

  • Shy artists who want more than craft-level classes

I recommend that students start with Marker Painting Foundations if you do not have basic blending skills before starting a Marker Painting Basics class.
