INKTENSE PENCIL Demo


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This Sunday 23rd Oct at Penguin Market I will demonstrate working with Inktense and other watercolour (aquarelle) pencils. Inktense are very soft and make beautifully vibrant marks which can be dissolved and blended easily… looking like transparent layers of ink. I tend to use them in conjunction with various water soluble pencils. I will have a variety you can try to see how different brands vary and I will offer hints on how I find they are best used. The  slide show here shows the nasturtiums I painted on silk using gutta technique last Sunday and a couple of examples of working with Inktense and Aquarelle pencils. (note these are quick i-phione photos taken indoors so reproduction accuracy is limited. The wren is unfinished).

SILK PAINTING DEMO using gutta resist technique


This Sunday 14th October at Penguin Market in my little art space I will paint a silk panel using gutta outliner/resist technique. This work will be larger than the ones I normally do for demonstration. Come and watch, ask questions about painting on silk at this free demo. Book into a silk painting workshop,you can even purchase the gear to have a go… dyes (steam or iron fixed, 3 pronged pins, brushes, silk, silk scarves)
