About the Course

One day line and wash workshop in Harwich. This workshop will require reasonable drawing skills

Join Anthony Nield on this full day workshop and discover how he develops a line and wash from the drawing stage, he will show you how he inks in the image ready for painting; “I always get better results by applying the ink first then the paint’’.

There will be lots of tips on composition, colour use and mark making with a pen. Anthony will also explain the the qualities and characteristics of the materials he uses and there will be plenty of one to one interaction throughout the day.

About the artist
Anthony is a full time artist and illustrator who has painted in watercolours for many years, but started to take it more seriously whilst working in Bermuda. Watercolour seemed the ideal medium for him to capture the natural beauty of the Island, however recently he has been working more in pen and ink.

Old Bank Studios offers a wide range of art, craft and textile courses and work-shops. Based in a glorious Edwardian banking hall, our fully equipped studios provide ideal spaces where students can work in a relaxed, ambient atmosphere. Located in the heart of Old Harwich, we are just a few yards from the Electric Palace Cinema.

If you are coming by car, there is normally plenty of on road parking, otherwise there is a public car park a one minute walk away. It is always possible to drop off right at our front doors.
