Classes in Oregon

It's been a while since I posted on here, but that isn't because I've simply been hiding out.

This Saturday, April 28th I will be teaching two Coloring Flowers classes in Salem, OR at Runaway Arts & Crafts. Spaces are still available! These are perfect beginner classes and are pulled directly from my book "Coloring Flowers with Copic Markers." Come join me!

In the meantime, I have been drawing and coloring a wide range of beautiful images. I'll post a few just to give you an idea. These are more of my complex drawings, so I won't go into the colors used, as it was way too many to keep track of!

This iguana took forever to color, as I started with a base range of blended greens and other shadow colors, then I added the individual scales with a colorless blender. Between the blender dots I added extra color enhancing specs with yellows or darker greens to just make the scales pop a little more.

This bright red stag beetle was a test of a paper someone had given me. At first I liked the paper, then I decided it wasn't my favorite, but it took me coloring for a few hours to figure out what I didn't like.

I made the shine on the beetle pop by working with a wide contrast range, from super light working into the darkest tones. You can really see the sheen on the shell by keeping the high contrast. Then I finished by adding thin white touches of Opaque White with a brush.

Have a creative weekend!

So good to see you on here Marianne! You taught me a class in Toronto many moons ago (I think it was 2009 or 2010?). I'm still having a blast with my Copics!
Your drawings are phenomenal - so creative and so full of depth, contrast and texture. I love these two!

very beautiful picture! I love it! I never know how to paint beautifully, although I went to art school to learn it. I was more inclined to writing. That's why now I'm working at order essay papers service, where I write different essays. You are so creative, keep drawing!

A nice image. I adore painting and would love to become a painter myself. Keep up the good work, lad!
