Today I want to share my final palette of alcohol markers for landscapes! I honestly feel like this is the perfect palette. You don’t need this many colors, but you could also have much more. If you want a really well-rounded palette, this is a great place to start.

I may have some minor adjustments in another year or so, but for now this palette is allowing me to do everything I need, and keeps me really inspired!
SHINHAN TOUCH TWIN MARKERS FOR LANDSCAPES
The Swatches – Color Corrected to match what I see in person.
As you can see, there are a couple colors that were very similar – like “Sap Green” and “Seaweed Green.” Do you need both? Probably not. Maybe. I am keeping sap green in my “backup” drawer and seaweed green has a place in the permanent palette.
I did my best to color correct every single swatch to give you a better idea of what they look like. It’s often hard to tell on a screen, but my version is more accurate than what you’ll find on other blogs (seriously, I used other people’s charts to choose my colors and they were misleading).
Note: On the second chart, I did not include Sap Green because I am keeping that in my drawer as a “backup” (it’s super similar to Seaweed Green)
Marker Landscape Drawing Examples
Here are a few pages in my Crescent Rendr sketchbook. These examples show the beginning stages of my experiments. Learning the colors takes time before doing bigger detailed drawings.
