This course looks at observational drawing of still life subjects in pen and ink. It starts with the basics explaining relative tone and how different weights of line affect a visual image. We will then move on to experiment with rendering texture in pen and ink and how texture interacts with tone. As part of the course we will spend short periods of time exploring this wonderful place to find interesting subjects that we will draw back at the studio. The drawing exercises are split into manageable chunks leading you through the process of collecting visual information and creating simple, effective drawings. Focusing on simple concepts and practical techniques, this course is suitable for everyone whether you are a beginner, a more experienced student, or are new to pen and ink.
