Do you struggle with color?

Some choices are easy- leaves are green and perhaps you want a yellow flower... but how do you decide what colors to use throughout the rest of the image?

It's always a brain-buster! Choose wisely and the image sings. Yet most of the time, we end up grabbing any old color that feels reasonable and that leads to a willy-nilly amateur looking projects.

Relax. Awesome color palettes are easier than you think. All it takes is a color wheel and some kindergarten level math.

Join Amy for a fantastic trip around the color wheel, helping you create dynamic and attractive color palettes for every project imaginable! After this class, you'll be set for life!

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!
