Pen and ink workshop
An opportunity to master a key skill in botanical illustration – line drawing in pen and ink.
Date and time
Saturday 14 – Sunday 15 March 2020
10.30am – 4pm
Mastering the art of drawing in pen and ink is a particularly useful skill for botanical illustrators.
During this new course, working with dip pens and black ink on paper, various methods of creating form will be introduced and practised. These will include stipple, hatching and variation of line.
We'll work on a couple of botanical subjects using these methods. Subjects will be first drawn in pencil and then transferred to final paper.
Beginners welcome – this course is suitable for all abilities. The tutor will provide dip pens and black ink for participants.
