Here is a brief tutorial showing how I like to color my pot from "Buds and Vases". I will do some separate tutorials for how to color the flowers because there are so many different ways to color flowers, not just their colors, but the way some have petals that are darker on the outer edges than inside , and vice versa, some have stripes, etc. But the pot follows some basic rules! :) I almost always color my images with the light coming from the right, which is what I am doing here. I used only two colors for this pot, and NO blender.
Here it is on the finished card, I added a shadow by making a little oval below the pot with W-33, and then W-1 on the outside of that to soften the edges and diffuse the shadow. I hope this is helpful to you! This is the simplest way I find to color with Copics, the fewest steps with the fewest markers, just thinking about objects you need to shade as dark, middle and light.
I submitted this card for a call but it didn't get picked up. That's okay, it's for my Mom and I know she'll love it! Have a great weekend!
