Description:

During this day we will be looking at the two main types of ink pen used with watercolour. In the morning we will be using liner pens to draw a harbour/coastal scene and add loose watercolour washes. In the afternoon we will move on to more intimate drawings of boats up close. For this second part of the day we will be using old fashioned dip pens and ink, looking at using water to dilute the ink as part of the paintings. These can be kept as a tonal study or colour can be added where needed. Advice will be given on using the different types of inks and pens, paper types and the best way of applying the watercolours on top.

Suitable For: Anyone - from beginners who would like to learn this technique to more experienced students looking to expand their watercolour skills.

You will learn which materials to use, how to correct mistakes, and keep the pristine look of your paper. Techniques studied include glazing and blending, the properties of the paint will be discussed, including the different approaches taken by botanical painters. In the morning there will be a colour mixing exercise, to enable you to examine and mix any colour you see. We will also look in detail at mixing accurate, interesting, non-muddy greens. After this we will move on to painting the seasonal botanical subject provided; this may include fruits, flowers, vegetables or foliage.
