Paint a penguin or a wise owl in this one-day workshop. With lots of support and guidance from artist and illustrator Ella Johnston, you will learn how to use mix, layer and use washes of watercolour to create gorgeous plumage and illustrations full of expression and character. You will also master fine line ink detailing with pigment ink pens as Ella demonstrates simple drawing techniques and effective little tricks to ensure you go home happy with your masterpiece!
Sheets of A4 watercolour paper, pencils and pigment ink pens will be available to work with on the day. If you would like to create a larger scale artwork please bring your own watercolour paper. There will be plenty of watercolours paints to work with but if you don’t want to share please bring your own watercolour equipment – basic colours are fine as we’ll be mixing and playing around with various shades.You should also bring a hard surface such as a drawing or clipboard to place your paper on if you are uncomfortable working on a table top. Ella will bring feathers and visual references.
