Material Charges £3 for specialist paper and pens


Join Margaret Jarvis for the day and learn the various intricacies of painting in Pen and Wash

This medium can also be known as 'Watercolour & Ink'.
This day will touch on colour mixing and using watercolours and it combines the subtle variable nature of the watercolour wash with finer detail picked out in black ink pen, allowing the artist different effects in shading and textures. The type of ink pens used - its water solubility and also stippling intensity and textures employed create a vast range of effects
