Watercolor/Pen and Ink

We will explore two mediums – watercolor and pen and ink – both individually and how they can be worked together. Students can work solely in watercolor or pen and ink, or they can combine the mediums. Watercolor techniques, such as dry brush, wet on wet, over washes and texture will be demonstrated and practiced. The possibilities of pen and ink will be explored. You will learn how to make a variety of lines with different materials in order to build rich drawings. Watercolor can be used to tint pen and ink drawings, or pen and ink can be used to enhance and give structure to a watercolor. A supply list will be discussed the first day of class.
