Pen and Wash with Lizzie Connor - This weekend will extend the skills from earlier pen and wash workshops by exploring more complex images and techniques, taking the work to a new level and pushing the boundaries with this fun and fresh medium. A pen and wash picture is not just a watercolour with an initial ink drawing. In a good pen and wash picture, the lines should vary in thickness, and offer a variety of marks to emphasise light, shade and form. Washes should be applied quickly and simply with minimum brushstrokes where possible so they stay fresh and transparent. Be prepared to explore and experiment.
