Meet JEN & INK COLOR: The Ballpoint E-Course

Jen & ink in Color is a companion to the original “Jen & Ink” course. In this self-paced e-course, I dive into color, the color wheel, and color theory. You’ll learn how to harmoniously work two or more colors together in a composition as well as more advanced ballpoint pen drawing techniques.

IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU TAKE “JEN & INK” BEFORE TAKING THIS COURSE.

“Jen & Ink in Color” builds on what is taught in the original “Jen & Ink” course. To get the most out of it, you’ll need the foundational skills presented in “Jen & Ink” to make sense of the new material.


I put together a little preview video of course materials.

What you Get When you Enroll in Jen & Ink in COLOR

  • INSTANT access to 6 in-depth lessons, each including step-by-step videos.

  • 3 HOURS of up close and personal drawing video.

  • UNLIMITED lifetime access to the course material, including any future updates.

  • MEMBERSHIP in the private Jen & Ink Facebook group, where you can ask questions and share your work.

Upon purchase you will have unlimited access to the materials, so you can work at your own pace, and can come and go as you please. No deadlines. No pressure to create!


Head on over to the Jen & Ink course page for more details.

I thank you friends, for your virtual encouragement as I built this course. It was a lot of work, but I loved every minute of it and I am so proud of what I made! 

Until next time. Ciao!

New E-course will be live soon!

“Jen & Ink in Color” is a companion course to the original “Jen & Ink” course. I dive into color and how to harmoniously work two or more colors together in a composition. I’ll be tackling all sorts of color schemes including complementary colors, analogous colors, triads, and how to successfully incorporate black and brown into drawings without overwhelming.

Want a sneak peek of the first lesson?

In this lesson, I discuss the color wheel and color theory. Knowing how colors work together (or don’t work together!) is an important part of any work made in color.

The video gives a nice overview of the content of Jen & Ink in Color. You’ll see all of the color schemes that I will demonstrate in this course.

Want to get started now?

Take my first course, “Jen & Ink!” You’ll want to take that one first, as they build on one another.

Stop it Switzerland!

Hi there. How are you? 

Gimmelwald-idyllic-view.jpg

My family and I took an unforgettable trip to Switzerland this summer. It's so damn idyllic there that it was difficult to whittle down the photos to a manageable number for this post. In true Johnson/Johansson style, this trip was jam packed with activities. 

Read on.....

Stettlen

Our trip started in Stettlen, just outside of Bern, to visit these two cuties (my niece and nephew) and their parents.  Even the view from their house is lovely. You can see the alps in the background. 

Bern

Matt and I were the first of the family to arrive, so we got to enjoy a private tour of Bern with Matt's brother Luke, his wife Cindy, and their kiddies, William and Kendall. 

Celebrating Jack

Next to arrive was Jack (my stepson) and Matt's parents. They had just finished up their week long trip to France and Germany. (That was his high school graduation present. How cool is that?!?) The celebration of Jack's graduation continued in Switzerland with tacos and ice cream cake. ( A very traditional Swiss meal. HA!) 

Solothurn

We took a walk around Solothurn, and hiked the 249 narrow stairs up to the top of the St. Ursen Cathedral for some spectacular views. Then it was a quick drive to Stansstad to visit a lakeside WWII era bunker. I had to snap a photo of the typewriter that I saw there. In fact, it was the only photo I took there. 

Lucerne

We ended the day in Lucerne, where we picked up Carrie and Rick who had just arrived in Switzerland. (Matt's sister and brother-in-law.) We had a lovely Swiss meal filled with sausages, pretzels, potatoes and beer. 

Murren

The following day we had another adventure, albeit a soggy one.  The pouring rain couldn't keep us from a trip up in the Bernese Alps. We took the gondola up to Murren, which even in the rain, was adorable and majestic. 

Stop it Switzerland

The rain started to subside a bit, so we decided to hike down the mountain to Gimmewald.  The views were so unreal and I kept saying "Stop it Switzerland." The beauty was totally overwhelming. I felt like I needed to stop every few feet to take a photo. The further down we descended, the more it cleared up. It made for some killer views! 

Cue the deluge of beauty.......

Seriously. Stop it Switzerland! 

A Break at the Pub

By the time we reached Gimmelwald the rain had ceased and the clouds had lifted. We stopped at an adorable pub for drinks and then took some more incredible photos outside. 

Kendall is my Muse

Can you tell I love snapping photos of my niece Kendall. She loves to pose for me! 

Well, that was just the first THREE days of the trip.

I'm exhausted from going through all these photos and reliving this unforgettable trip. I'll have to finish up this recap in another post. 

That's all for now. Ciao!
