You can shift the temperature of a color?

Absolutely!

Contrary to everything you read on crafty coloring blogs, depth does not come from shading with darker markers.

Darker markers are darker, that's it.

I know you're not used to hearing this but it's true. Making something darker doesn't do a darned thing to sculpt its shape or to create the illusion of distance.

Ink & Hydrangea, one of my most popular video classes is going live!

It's big and detailed, so we'll spend two full class periods coloring it. That's March and April.

Most colorers are aware that colors are often referred to as warm or cool but never move beyond this vague awareness. Controlling the temperature of your colors is actually a vital skill that's essential to developing greater depth and realism in your projects. Learn how to shift your colors and what effect that has on your object.
