It sounded so simple - “I’ll color the flower light yellow and it will be so soft and pretty…”

But you ended up with a glow-in-the-dark daffodil.

I get it. I avoided yellow for almost a decade because everytime I used it, you could see my yellows from space.

Join me for a fun demonstration on taming your yellows. Reduce the glow, control the color, and prevent them from dominating your entire project.

Vanilla Livestream classes- challenges for intermediate to advanced colorers using Copic Markers and colored pencils. Every month you'll learn a new artistic technique to take your coloring to the next level! | Marker | #copicmarker #coloredpencil #realisticcoloring

Vanilla Livestream is perfect for:

  • Intermediate colorers who already have basic Copic blending skills

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

  • Experienced colorers looking to challenge their current skills

  • Shy artists who want more than craft-level classes based on trendy techniques

I recommend that if you're a beginner, start with Marker Painting Foundations to develop your basic marker technique BEFORE joining Vanilla Livestream classes. These are definitely intermediate level challenges!
