You just can’t beat the color and precision you get when you make a small canvas art with a brush Sharpie marker.
They actually work a lot like paint, in that they do mix when you overlap them, and the fine tips allow a continual flow of color.
1. Follow my “How to Draw a Maple Leaf” tutorial to draw one in pencil on a mini canvas. Trace it with a black Brush Sharpie Marker. If you haven’t tried these new markers yet, do it soon, they are a treat!
3. Fill in the background and sides with a blue Brush Sharpie Marker. I left a little white edge because the black will smear if you touch it while coloring. You may like it though, if it happens, as the look gets more “painterly”.
5. Hang your masterpiece. See, wasn’t that quick and easy? Note: The glitter didn’t photograph so well here, the real thing sparkles like a Christmas tree!
