No strings, no spam. It's simply a free image for you to color.

Subscribers to the FDC receive one free image every month, delivered right to your email inbox.

My digital stamps are ideal for Copic marker coloring but they also work great with colored pencil and even watercolor. My stamps are full of wide open spaces to blend and celebrate pretty color. There are no distracting texture marks to get in the way of your creativity!

That's what the "Vanilla" in Vanilla Arts Co. is all about. I give you the vanilla base, you add the hot fudge, the sprinkles, the whipped cream, and the Copic ink.

Perfect for markers or colored pencil

And I've used both to create a warm yet quiet scene.

Candlelight is a versatile stamp, you can easily change the color and print on the bow, even add "Happy Birthday" to the tag or leave it plain.

Such a fun image and I loved the challenge of filling an image with rich and vibrant color yet keeping the entire vibe one of peace and quiet.

Candles are not a new subject in the stamping world but most people color them as if they're PVC pipes with a thermodynamic explosion at the top.

Take it easy folks! Candle light is gentle and muted. Learn how to control the wattage and add a lovely translucency to your wax candle.

The best thing about Marker Painting Basics classes is that they're NON SEQUENTIAL!

You don't need three months of prior experience to understand the concepts and techniques in this lesson.

If you can handle basic Copic blending method then you're ready to start incorporating real artist techniques into your coloring projects for enhanced realism, depth, and dimension.

Each class stands on it's own as an independent learning experience. No prior experience necessary!

All of my Workshop classes are FOREVER ACCESS. Work at your own pace and repeat the project as many times as you'd like.

Come color with me. It's a whole lot of fun!

Advanced Copic Marker Class- Food & Photo Realism

 

Food & Photo Realism

Food illustrations are pretty trendy on the internet now... maybe we're all looking for a little calorie free comfort food?

This time, we'll be studying our photo reference to color white frosting accurately. White isn't white, so we'll discuss my philosophy behind choosing colors for white food (as opposed to coloring non-food white items).

Join us for art based coloring lessons. You'll love the students and the challenge!
