Colour Techniques for Pen & Ink



14-16 May 2021


Join me for this extended weekend online pen & ink drawing course looking at different techniques for adding colour to pen & ink drawings including drawing with coloured ink and watercolour washes.  It focuses on the changes that occur in visual hierarchy with the inclusion of colour, considering how colour can be used to express relative tone and the complexities of creating a visual hierarchy when combining techniques.  This course is a must for anyone who wants to develop their colour work.
