Colorers worry too much about where the sun is shining.

"If the sun is coming from the left, then maybe the shade goes over here... or would it be over there?"

Let me lay a truth bomb on you. The directional lighting has nothing to do with depth. How do I know? Because when you turn off all the lights to go to bed at night, you don't magically turn into a flat paper doll.

Simplify your coloring! Learn Amy's Push & Pull technique to create amazing depth without a care about which direction the light is coming from.

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!
