This four day workshop will focus on the traditional elements of pen & ink and its combination with wash. Black India and other waterproof inks are permanent in nature. This, together with the low cost and ease of reproduction, continue to make it a popular medium for commercial illustrations and architectural renderings.
Because the pen is essentially a linear tool, it can only delineate small areas that must be carefully planned. However, when combined with wash (diluted ink) or watercolor, it becomes tinted or painted drawing, capable of covering larger areas. Hatching, cross-hatching, stippling and wash will all be presented so that students may develop a personal style.
