Description

Ink resist / gouache wash off If you love the strength of ink against delicacy of watercolour washes, or just like learning unusual techniques, then ink resist or gouache wash off, is for you. It certainly exploits the very best of ink and watercolour. It is a painterly technique which produces an image similar to a wood or lino cut. Though the process is exacting and needs to be followed carefully, the end result is unpredictable and exciting. You will be introduced to this way of painting, and we will do a small warm up piece. Then there is a full step-by-step project based around the ancient landscape of the Ridgeway Path in the Chilterns.

What's included in the price?

Nine films and plenty of reference files will guide you through a warm up exercise to get you familiar with the technique and then take you on to a full-length demonstration of the Chiltern landscape.

What you will need

The warm up exercise will familiarise you with the process and check that your paper can withstand scrubbing under the water, so ensure that you use the paper and ink you intend to use in the final project. For the warm up exercise of the rainbow you will need: a small piece (approx 20x15cm) of NOT/Cold press watercolour paper, a minimum of 140lb/325gsm black waterproof Indian ink gouache - white, red, orange, yellow, blue, violet if you do not have these colours, please improvise or tint your white gouache with watercolour pencil, eraser medium round brush For the main project you will need: a piece of watercolour paper approx 40x50cm NOT/Cold press watercolour paper, a minimum of 140lb/325gsm black waterproof Indian ink gouache - cerulean blue, yellow, yellow ochre, burnt Sienna, raw Umber, Prussian blue, white if you do not have these colours, please improvise or tint your white gouache with watercolour pencil, eraser medium and small round brush 0.5mm fine liner pen watercolour paints - cerulean blue, yellow, yellow ochre, burnt Sienna, raw Umber, Prussian blue, white
