Field Breaks  Art Club

On-line workshops to inspire and motivate

Pen and Wash

Monday 17th May 10:00am to 11:30am 

Join us for a little relaxed sketching with that lovely medium, pen and wash - the perfect method for drawing on location when you are out and about.  We will look at using a pen to define objects and pick out the interesting details of a landscape, before going on to use watercolours to bring out the tones and thecapture mood and atmosphere.  Suitable for all abilities.
