Event description
Learn interesting themes of watercolour painting with Ink-and-Wash with David Liew - illustrator and cartoonist.

About this event

WHAT?

Participants will take a journey back in time as they explore the world where ink drawings meet watercolours. Looking back a traditional method of book illustration, the theme running through the course would be storytelling.

Favourite stories would be explored – with hope that their own visual stories would emerge.

Course Objectives

Participants will explore a combination of pen-and-ink, as well as watercolour techniques. This includes exploration in mark-making such as hatching and stippling to create details and exciting textures.
