Pen and Wash wish Lizzie Connor
Pen and wash is a freeing and fun way of combining some watercolour technique with your drawing skills. A wash is a term for a visual arts technique resulting in a semi-transparent layer of color. A wash of diluted water colour paint applied in combination with drawing is called pen and wash. Normally only one or two colours of wash are used over selected areas of the drawing to emphasise focal points in the drawing. If students are not confident with drawing, this could be a great way to develop your skills with drawing, and include paint mediums. Using lightweight materials this process is perfect for travel journaling or quick inspired sketches.
