Day 4 and let's see the Shade

I loved watching the videos today, well, it just keeps getting better on our Copics online coloring class.
Sandy's video was such a great boon for visualizing the places to shade, what remains in the light, tips and tricks.  When I started with such dark blue colors, I thought it wasn't going to be anything but a big blob!...I was playing with colors out of my comfort zone, but I'm feeling a lot more confident now about using those darker colors.

Today, it was all about blending from the dark to the light on this particular image.  Kristina likes to move fast on coloring the leaves.  I love Kristina's statement about getting impatient on little flower images.  She asked us if it frustrated us to color flower images.  

Jennifer uses a non-directional light source - the light comes from her face.  She practices too and showed us a flower that she wrote "Yucky" across.  Fun fun video.

I was up for trying all kinds of colors.  today.  Hope you enjoyed today too.

I hear you about using dark colors. Just using a tiny bit sure goes a long way, huh? Great job coloring and shading!
