Workshop Overview

Mixing watercolor with pen and ink is magical. In this three-day workshop we will incorporate pen and ink into watercolor paintings. Day one we will look at the different pen strokes and the ways pen techniques are used in a painting. Next, we apply pen to paper on pieces that will be completed with watercolor. Days two and three we explore watercolor textures with pen and ink in a freestyle way using India ink and will create our own small watercolor journal to use with the techniques learned. The workshop will be filled with demonstrations of tips and tricks on how to prepare journals for future paintings.

Materials List: Students Bring

• Archival black ink pens – waterproof (very important) Archival Ink pens come in various sizes: .005, 1.0, 3.0, 5.0 for example. You can purchase a set for a great price at Dick Blick and other fine art stores. Here are some suggested brand names:

o Sakura Pigma Micron, Staedltier, Prismacolor, Faber Castell

• One small bottle of waterproof India ink

• One white gel pen

• One full sheet of Arches 140-pound hot press or cold press paper 22" x 30" (not broken down-we will need a small portion of the full sheet to create the journal so it must be in its full size). Hot press is smoother and will give more even lines however, I use cold press and it works just fine.

• One small piece of 300-pound Arches watercolor paper (for the cover of your journal). - The size should be big enough to get two 4" x 6" pieces out of it.

• Your regular watercolor supplies – brushes, paints and palette, pencil, eraser, paper towels, etc.

• I will provide images to work from but you are welcome to bring some images of your own.

Some extra options if you like, not required:

• Colored archival ink pens

• Sepia Pens – give a nice vintage look

Materials List: Provided by Instructor(s)

• PVA Glue

• Book ties

• Straws to blow ink
