I have an unusual post today--no card, but plenty of coloring for sure! If you follow Marianne Walker's blog, you probably saw this post back in April. While we were at our Copic team meeting last month, Marianne brought line art so that all of us could color this image from a photograph taken in Portland, Oregon last fall. One thing I loved about this project was that all of us started with the same outlines and the same photo reference, but we all ended up with pieces that are a little bit different in style. (I don't think that Lori Craig, Cindy Lawrence, and Colleen Schaan have posted their versions yet, but Sherrie Siemens posted hers HERE, and Marianne's is in her blog post that I've already linked to.)
I had intended to keep track of all of the Copic markers that I used on this image, but I don't have an all-inclusive list, since I didn't color this piece in once sitting. I was mostly happy with how it turned out. (Hey, if you can't tell what part I struggled with, I certainly won't enlighten you! ;-})
Besides sharing my Portland picture, I wanted to tell you that I will be in Sacramento this coming weekend, November 15-16, teaching both a Copic Standard and a Copic Intermediate Certification class. Neither class is completely full, so if you are interested in attending, I would LOVE to see you there! For more information or for registration, go <<HERE>>.
While I'm at it, let me mention again the Anaheim classes prior to CHA as well, taught by Colleen Schaan, Sherrie Siemens, and Michelle Houghton. You can find out more about these classes HERE (2014 Workshop Series), HERE (Standard Certification) and HERE (Intermediate Certification). There are some exciting classes planned for 2014, and we have a LOT of coloring to do before then! ;-)
Thanks for visiting today,
