Pen and Ink with Watercolour – for beginners and intermediate

Learn to draw and paint using pen and ink with watercolour washes.

Course overview

This class is great for beginners, and also those with some experience who want to expand their skills in drawing and painting in watercolour.

Using a variety of pens and inks (soluble and permanent), students will learn different sketching techniques to draw a wide range of subjects. Watercolour can then be added to add colour and atmosphere. We will cover subjects from still life, landscapes, animals, people, figures and more. Bring along your own favourite subject reference to work on or use the reference material supplied.
