Advanced Marker Painting - Negative Painting
Join Amy Shulke, a professional illustrator and marker enthusiast for a live coloring demonstration. Real coloring in real time.
Are you ready for realistic coloring?
Online video classes are not real, at least not real in the way you assume.
The projects are planned months in advance. The lessons are tested and simplified. The demonstration is rehearsed. The footage is shot multiple times and edited for clarity. The script is….well, it’s a script!
Everything about an online art class is designed to make the project look easy and amazing.
But that's not how real art works
Marker Painting Workshops Live breaks the production barrier, giving you a real look into the real time artistic process.
We're flipping that idea on its head, celebrating the shape instead of the object with an introduction to negative painting.
Join Amy for a challenge level lesson which forces you out of your comfort zone. Too often we get trapped into coloring "leaves" and "flower petals" which leads to the same old boring leaves and flower petals.
If you've ever dreamed of coloring with freedom and flair, this is the ticket to artistry.
Spring Rain is an Advanced coloring demonstration.
We welcome colorers of many levels into this class, however, basic techniques are not covered. For advanced classes you need a firm grasp on basic techniques and be able to use them confidently. At Vanilla Arts our advanced classes are really just intermediate-plus level projects with much less supervision. We move fast in the advanced classes and introduce concepts which have more than one solution. Students rely on their taste or judgement to complete the project.

"OMGosh! This was so much fun! This has such a watercolor feel, which I just love. Thanks Amy! Fun project!!"
"I haven’t colored a Livestream in some time. This one spoke to me for the “artist” look and feel to it. I created a gorgeous Copic splash background and totally lost the image on the front. So I decided to just go rouge and use a combination of Distress Ink and Copic."
"I just love the things I'm learning and can't wait to start the next project. Your images are challenging for me and I like that. I'll never look at another image and how to color it the same again!"
