A very stimulating couple of mini workshops this month under the umbrella of Handmade Oxford, on the amazing familiar site of the Art in Action in Oxfordshire, where I was introducing people to the exciting, precarious and wonderful way Indian Ink reacts and works with pure watercolour.
Lots of delicious wet into wet, yielding some fabulous results, I definitely sent away around 20 ‘loose women’ to continue to develop their own ideas In this medium.
Have you ever placed a pen nib fully loaded with Indian ink onto a patch of wet watercolour? Try it.......and try again. The ink just swims along into the watercolour breaking up as it flows - with a bit of luck.
In fact at Summer School 2022 with Missenden Abbey in Gt.Missenden nr Aylesbury, Bucks there will be two, separate, three-day courses, each looking at wicked ways with ink and watercolour.
These courses can be residential or not, and I am planning an ever more exciting experience for all-comers.
We have good studio space with walled garden, good food and comfortable accommodation, so why not join me on this extravaganza.
From floral to architecture to landscape and more........
