About This Class


Ever wondered how just a simple brush stroke can catch the viewer's attention and cause a huge emotional reaction?

In this class I’ll show you my 5 favorite inking tips and tricks which can add a dramatic effect to your illustration, design or any artwork. Many of them I use in my works.

By the end of this class you will know how easily and quickly with some inks strokes you can lead the viewer's eye and bring any image to live.


Beauty is all around us, and and I'm very excited to show interpretation of it in this particular way!

very informative and helpful class!
Thank you for a very interesting class. I learned things I did not know and appreciate knowing. I enjoyed this class very much. Kandi
Amazing and very inspiring class, I can't wait to try all the techniques explained in the class. I think the ink (black or white) also will add great effect to watercolor illustrations. Thank you, Anna!
