Drawing with pen and ink is not for the faint at heart. This ageless medium provides an opportunity for artists to make crisp, detailed illustrations or to complement watercolor painting.
This course offers the experienced pencil sketching artist the challenge of laying ink on top of a pencil line. Learn how and when to hatch, cross-hatch, and stipple for tone and shadow. Choose when to use different nibs of pen or brush, or even a broken twig for texture and motion. Experiment with colored india ink, magic marker or graphite for mood.
Initial course materials required are: 2B pencil & sharpener, kneadable eraser, 2 Micron pens (.005 and 02), ruler or straight edge, sketchpad, and pad of Bristol Drawing paper (recommend 11"x14" Canson Bristol XL Recycled).
This new course will offer surprises as we experiment and learn from each other about how to use a medium sometimes considered unforgiving. Come join us in this surprise!
