Ink and Wash Painting Workshop

July 13 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Line and wash is a watercolor technique that originated in China under the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD). This style combines a line drawing with watercolor washes. The line is drawn first with a gel, ink or micron pen, then the watercolor paint is applied. Since a lot of the structure of the painting is established by the line drawing itself, often all that is needed from the paint is a wash of color – hence the name, line and wash.

Line and wash is a technique often used for quick sketches in a sketchbook, however it can also be used for a larger finished paintings. Buildings, street scenes, landscapes, still life, portraits and even flowers can be painted using line and wash technique.

For beginner to advanced students.

Tuition: Members $60/Non-Members $85
