Explore the handling of pen and ink!

We'll cover how to achieve tonal values through line, dots, and washes by combining line groups together. Using fineliners, brushes, sponges etc. will allow you to achieve varied effects. Methods will vary from freeform to controlled mark making.

Beginning with a series of practice mark-making using various skills, the class will then explore composition. You'll be able to use one or more of the techniques we explored in the morning to commence a final piece in the second half of the day.

Students may bring their own photo references which inspire them (preferably on an iPad or printed copy – it is not advised to use a small phone screen), otherwise references will be supplied.
