Marker Painting Basics: "Oopsie Daisy" online class, learn to use the Flick stroke with Copic Markers

Learn to Color with Copic Markers. Beginner level online course in Marker Painting, a unique approach to coloring. |

Everybody talks about the flick stroke...

You can't spend 10 minutes looking at Copic on the internet without stumbling across a reference to flicking.

But here's the problem- instructors and bloggers don't seem to agree on what a flick is and how to do it.


Really. It's likely in the top ten things that marker bloggers blog about and if I had a Twinkie for every different explanation I've seen...

Well, I'm not sure what I'd do with a three story high pile of Twinkies... but you get the idea.

Join me for a deep dive look at the Marker Painting flick technique

What a flick is, what it looks like, how to do it, when to do it...

This isn't just a passing glance at flicking! I even get into maximizing your wrist anatomy to make the best flick possible.

Patreon is where people can support their favorite artists, musicians, bloggers, and other internet content providers.

I do Patreon differently. I offer classes there! Oopsie Daisy originally ran on Patreon for my student supporters. Each month, my students have access to not one but TWO video based classes plus the digital stamp and helpful printable handouts.
