MAY Lesson: Verdant Spring
Digital stamp is a separate purchase from PowerPoppy.com (log in at Patreon to receive your 20% off discount code).
It sounded so easy,
“I’ll color the flowers with a barely-there light green and fade the petals into white edges using a colorless blender…”
But all the greens looked yellow on the paper, so you had to go darker than you wanted.
And then the colorless blender turned the Copic ink all funky blue… and you’re not sure, but it kinda looks like some of your light green areas have faintly purple edges?
What in the heck is going on?
Green Copics are not as advertised - they’re not green ink!
Join Amy for this fun lesson on pale greens which includes a bit o’ color chemistry. We’ll get you coloring the pale greens you want rather than spinning the wheel of fate.

Vanilla Livestream is perfect for:
Intermediate colorers who already have basic Copic blending skills
Intermediate colorers who are tired of "monkey see, monkey do" demonstrations
Experienced colorers looking to challenge their current skills
Shy artists who want more than craft-level classes based on trendy techniques
I recommend that if you're a beginner, start with Marker Painting Foundations to develop your basic marker technique BEFORE joining Vanilla Livestream classes. These are definitely intermediate level challenges!
