Advanced Copic Retreat Stamp: Art Impressions “Turtle Stackers”
r I have spent the last few days at the 2017 Advanced Copic Retreat in Arizona. Created by Copic Instructor, Jennifer Dove, this is an extraordinary event comprised of 12 hour days, multiple marker techniques and a lot of fun! This is a mini bunny I created with Copic markers and a multiliner. Teeny tiny … More Mini Bunny and the Advanced Copic Retreat
Today I started the Whimsical Sketching class with Sandy Allnock. Our first exercise was flowers!
Sometimes it is just fun to see what you can do with a limited palette. For this butterfly, image by Marianne Walker, I used R81 and BV13. I highlighted the light spots with a white gel pen so that they would really stand out.
This is a page I colored (with Copic markers) from Lisa Funk’s Creative Lettering Journal – a wonderful book filled with lettering drills, quotes and images. A fun way to augment your lettering practice.
The Apple Branch image is from DoveArt Studios. This was an additional exercise in water droplets and it completes all my unfinished images from last year’s Bootcamp. Ready for Advanced Bootcamp! Copic Bootcamp
This dragonfly floral stamp image is by Jennifer Dove. In this piece I worked on showing a different kind of transparency, this time through the wings of a dragonfly! Copic Bootcamp
Using this image from Jennifer Dove, we worked on the tip to tip technique with Copic markers. With this technique, you take one marker and touch it to the tip of another marker and then apply your color. I practiced this predominantly on the butterfly using Cadmium Red and Cadmium Yellow markers. Copic Bootcamp
