In fine art, the term ‘pen and ink’ denotes a drawing to a support (generally paper) with either a dip pen or a reservoir pen. This traditional, versatile medium has been used by Western artists since ancient-Egyptian times, for sketches, finished drawings or, when combined with watercolour, ink and wash paintings. This course will introduce you to the various techniques, including cross-hatching, stippling and wash, required to produce your own art which could be used in sketchbooks, journals or paintings. Students will require a minimum of materials to get started (a list of suggested materials will be provided before the course), so can give the medium a try without incurring great expense. The course is suitable for beginners as well as more experienced artists.
During this course the tutor will be demonstrating using a high definition overhead camera, enabling students to follow his actions on the TV screen.
