Brilliant So Far !!

I have just finished watching the section on adding watercolour to a an already completed ink drawing. I was fascinated to see our tutor very carefully staying within the lines. I thought his finished work looked delightful. The advice that I have had in the past, is let the colour escape from the edges of the drawing so that one is not just " colouring in " I actually prefer the " neater " finish that our tutor adopts.

Lots of Techniques!

The instructor assumes you already know how to draw and shows different techniques: 1) outline a pencil sketch in ink, then cross hatch 2) outline a pencil sketch in ink, then dry brush 3) sketch in pencil, then ink not using cross hatch 4) sketch in pencil, then ink, then watercolor, and 5) how to make your own composite mixed media work. He explains each of the techniques throughly. His demonstrations were a still life, portrait, landscape, and two landscapes with different objects.

Very Informative

This is my first class using ink pens and in just the first two lessons the instructor has taught in a way that has given me a terrific foundation to keep building on. There's lots of good info and the flow of the teaching is well done!
