How to Blend Alcohol-based Markers: a video lesson from Brave Brushes Studio's Marker Course.

Blending is one of the key techniques for sketching with markers. And markers are a great way to create quick colorful (urban) sketches. So watch this video today to learn how to blend markers beautifully. 

This lesson comes from Brave Brushes Studio, our membership community for amateur artists and urban sketchers. The community helps artists improve their technique, sketch regularly, and meet other artists. The membership includes monthly Adventures (a series of video lessons on a chosen topic for focused practice), a library of resources (all of Julia's courses and workshop recordings), regular live Q&A sessions and live sketching sessions.

IF YOU ARE A BRAVE BRUSHER: you already have this lesson in the library. This lesson is part of our Marker Adventure. 

Happy sketching! And don't forget to share your artwork on Instagram: tag us @bravebrushes and use #bravebrushes_advent and #juliahenze_learnwithme so we can see your projects!
