I’m also focusing on another technique featured in Intro to Coloring with Copic Markers published by Imagination International. On this post, I featured two-color butterflies. Today I’m coloring wood!
The sample in the book uses a weathered wood chair, but the basic principles can apply to a tree as well.
I first applied a streaky base coat of E31, moving my marker in the direction of the wood grain (1). Next, I applied E33, holding the marker a bit more upright to apply thinner strokes (2). I then held E35 completely upright, using only the tip of the marker to apply lines of color (3). Once the ink was dry, I returned with E31 to blend only minimally (4).
In order to leave a white highlight on the bear noses, I carefully outlined each nose with the tip of a W9 marker, drew a line just to the left of the highlight area and filled in the area to the left of the line.
I will be back soon with another technique featured in Intro to Coloring with Copic Markers. So many from which to choose!
Thanks for stopping by!
