Learn beginning and advanced ink drawing techniques for both sketching and realistic drawing during this workshop. Ink is a medium that can be used for great efficiency and accuracy of line, as well more fluid expressive strokes. At its essence, learning to draw and paint with ink is a study in tonality, the very foundation of any successful drawing or painting in any medium. Explore the drama of light and shadow through the use of ink. 

Discover the versatile potential of ink: 

  • organized cross hatching
  • calligraphy-like gesture strokes
  • defined high contrast shadows
  • subtle tonal values when mixed with water

Explore different types of ink based materials, from pigment liners to brush pens, and learn how to choose the best one for our project. 


Who is this workshop for?

Either you want to be more sure and bold in your line art or if you want to learn different brush techniques to give dinamism to your textures and backgrounds, learning how to use inks will improve your poetic range
