How to color night scenes – oh my! Quite the topic to tackle.

How to color vintage night scenes

So many people want to know how to color night scenes with their Copic Markers. This stamp, From Bethlehem by Penny Black, is a perfect one for refreshing a night coloring technique I showed a while back in THIS video.

I had colored this image while on a retreat in October, and it came out so cool I was kicking myself for not filming at the time! This is my attempt to recreate it, and in a simpler way than I had done the first time. Enjoy! (If you can’t see the video below, click HERE to watch it directly on YouTube.)
