Discovering Pen and Wash, also known as 'Watercolour & Ink'
Christmas Card making course
This day will touch on colour mixing and using watercolours and it combines the subtle variable nature of the watercolour wash with finer detail picked out in black ink pen, allowing the artist different effects in shading and textures. The type of ink pens used - its water solubility and also stippling intensity and textures employed create a vast range of effects.
Students therefore spend less time on the course studying in depth colour mixing and and more time on different effects one can make with the pen compared to a watercolour course.
After painting your cards Xmas cards, 5 minutes with a colour photocopier will mean you can keep the original & make your own impressive cards from copies.
