The transparency of watercolours allows the liveliness of the pen to tell the story, but there’s much more to line and wash than ‘colouring in’...

Combining watercolours with pen line has always been popular with artists, illustrators and sketchers.  Spend a day with artist tutor Claudia Myatt exploring this versatile technique in the comfort of your own home, with close up demonstrations, exercises and feedback, including:

  • the different ways that artists and illustrators have used line and wash
  • choosing your pens – waterproof or water soluble, pens or modern, how to make your own
  • improving your confidence with pen drawing, how to loosen up and make the lines dance
  • colour first or line first – exploring different styles
  • line and wash as a sketching medium
  • line and wash for finished artwork

Materials needed:

  • sketchbook
  • watercolour pad or loose sheets (use NOT or smooth (HP) watercolour paper rather than rough)
  • 2B pencil
  • variety of sketching pens – waterproof, non-waterproof, whatever you can find in your art kit or local art shop or stationers. Most modern pens are inexpensive – a set of 5 Unipin waterproof sketching pens is about £10. Do get in touch if you have any queries about which pens to buy.
  • watercolours and brushes
  • any old watercolour brushes and/or small twigs from the garden!
  • a sharp scalpel (optional)
  • bottle of Indian ink (optional)
