In this workshop, you will be introduced to the main principles of ink painting and will learn the central role of water to compose a balanced artwork.
In the morning, you will discover ‘wet on wet’ and ‘wet on dry’ techniques and will experiment through layering effects to create light and darkness. You will also discover various texture rendering techniques to add depth and
value to your art.
In the afternoon, you will be introduced to gold leaf and white ink detailing. You will also create your own artwork(s). A short exhibition will be organised by the end of the workshop, for everyone to enjoy each others’ work
This workshop also includes tips for ink management, brush and paper qualities, how to use negative and positive space efficiently.

By the end of the 6 hours workshop you will have produced:
– a series of techniques on an A4 watercolour paper (to which you will be
able to refer to in the future)
– one A5 practice work, on supplied watercolour paper, to experiment with
the newly learned techniques
– two A3 paintings(or more if you are prolific!) with your own art
