Line and Wash – Pen and Ink Techniques — 5 Comments

  1. Am enjoying this course, thanks for your skill and hard work. I wonder if you will be mentioning, demonstrating, colored ink somewhere in this course? I don’t have any but have a book which uses them with watercolor and have wondered how to get other than the primary colors or garish colors. Also, would you elaborate on your remark about the look of a painting done with line and wash in module 3? Tks.

  2. Very helpful. I love these exercises. Compared to a full-blown project, they can be done in a reasonable amount of time while giving me the practice that I need to develop my skills. Thanks Matt! I have been playing around with creating my own “inks” using a variety of natural materials (pokeweed, red cabbage, and turmeric). It will be fun to use these natural inks as an alternative to watercolor to create a pen and ink drawing.

  3. So much information so beautifully presented to us. your skills as a teacher and artist are at the highest level . cant wait to open the next lesson to see what you have for us.
