Pen and Watercolour Techniques, Esk, June
Somerset Art Society Inc.
Sunday June 19
10am -4 pm
A variety of different subjects and styles will be covered using felt pen with watercolour. After starting with traditional pen & wash techniques, we will also explore how to incorporate line work into finished watercolour paintings for added interest. Other styles will also be covered so that students have plenty of inspiration for future painting ideas.
This workshop is a wonderful opportunity to have a play with this combination of media which has a large range of possibilities.

· All your usual watercolour painting supplies-paints, brushes, water pots, old towel, board, masking tape, pencil and eraser
