It was great to have my small 5″ X 7″ sketch pad, pencil, eraser and fine line marker at a meeting I attended last week. This gave me a chance to draw a couple pages of sunflowers. Back at the house, a container was added and Copic Markers were used to color the images. I challenged myself to use unique hues/colors in the center of the flowers. In this image, two different valued blue-green markers or turquoise, (BG18 & BG57), a violet or purple (V17) and a blue (B26) plus a green (G85) were used.
Copic Coloring Tip: You will find in the Copic Marker 2014 Product Catalog on page 25, a chart that shows the first number of a marker refers to the saturation within a color family, note the chart below. I also describe a marker color with a low first number in the green family, like G14, as a spring green and a marker color with a high first number, like G85, as an olive green.
