Albuqurque New Mexico - Certification
Just got back from my latest Copic Certification Class. It was a great group of gals and I believe I made several new friends. The mountain was amazingly beautiful.. nothing like any mountains I have ever seen.... and the sunset was unbelieveable. I am glad I was able to see these natural beauties.
Here are a few photos from the class... someday I will fit my good camera into my suitcases and take a few better pictures.. the droid cell phone can take photos.. but the quality is not top notch.
A few tips for my Certification gals.
* remember to use your light ink first, add your darker color, return to your light color to blend. Do not use your blender pen to blend.
*Use the side of your nib instead of the very tip of the nip to get a wider stroke of ink onto your paper, making it easier to blend.
* Have fun and continue to practice. You were given a ton of information, now several of you still need to practice practice practice to master each of the skills you were taught.
* The numbers - First number is how much gray is in the color, The second number is how bright the color is. To blend a group of colors, I like to keep the first number the same, and the second number varies in increments of 2-3.
