Description

Introduction to ink painting with Sophie Dieu https://www.sofie-dieu.com

Ideal for beginners and artists alike, interested to learn ink painting techniques, mark making, gold leaf and white ink detailing.

CONTENT:

In this workshop, you will be introduced to the main principles of ink painting and will learn the central role of water to compose a balanced artwork.

In the morning, you will discover ‘wet on wet’ and ‘wet on dry’ techniques, and will experiment through layering effects to create light and darkness. You will also discover various texture rendering techniques to add depth and value to your art.

In the afternoon, you will be introduced to gold leaf and white ink detailing. You will also create your own art work(s). A short exhibition will be organised by the end of the workshop, for everyone to enjoy each others’ work

This workshop also includes tips for ink management, brush and paper

qualities, how to use negative and positive space efficiently.

By the end of the 6 hours workshop you will have produced:
