Watercolor, Pen, and Inks

Jacqueline Newbold
9:00 - 4:30
Thursday Feb 18

$ 170  

Combining pens, inks, and watercolor has many wonderful attributes. Adding ink to watercolor can enhance the look of the art, give focus to certain area, add darks, help define shapes, fix and clarify perspective, and provide a opportunity for creative mark making. Part of the fun of this technique is that there are no hard and fast rules. We will experiment with different inks, styles, and techniques in search of the one that works best for you and your art journaling. It is pen fun time! 

Materials Fee  $12 paid at beginning of class includes:

Extra watercolors, acrylic based inks, water-soluble pens, gesso, masa paper, vellum, pens

Notes about watercolor paint colors: My favorite brands include Daniel Smith, Winsor Newton, Sennelier, and Holbein. Cobalt blue, cerulean blue, French ultra-marine, permanent magenta, permanent rose, French vermilion, quinacridone red, permanent orange, new gamboge or Indian yellow, Hansa or lemon yellow, quinacridone gold, and sap green are always on my palette.
