A Winter Scene Pen & Wash Class

We had great full group for our last day of term.

Our popular Pen & Wash Class.

There were some fantastic black pen drawings today.

Claire demonstrated how to add colour to them with a light watercolour wash, remembering to keep the whites of the snow, and to add reflections in both snow and water to create depth.

Below is an example from Claire's inspiring sketchbook.  It's always great to look at for ideas. 

Below is Claire's demo picture towards the end,  you can see the smiley face in the top right hand corner of the board, this is to remind the artists from which direction the sun is coming from, this really helps with the shadows. 

Here are some wintery pictures, in the afternoon we also got some artists going on to try animals and birds.

Well done everyone, see you in 2017!
