Pen and ink is a versatile alternative to painting and pencil drawing, particularly when traveling. Using just three pens in analogous colors of different values you will learn how to build up value and form. This five-day workshop offers an integrated approach between pen (Micron pen, Ballpoint), Watercolor, Acrylic, and your chosen surface. Focus will be on the figure, both nude and clothed. Demos and/or lectures with examples will be given at the beginning of each day. Whether you are a beginner or advanced artist, individual attention and feedback will be provided to help you reach a new level of understanding of this medium and its capabilities.
