Ink Wash Drawing

Instructor: Erin Raedeke

Sunday, June 14

12 - 4 pm EST

 

Ink wash is a wonderful way to bridge the gap between drawing with dry media and painting with oil or acrylic and is easy and portable for at-home use. The gradations of wash, from the lightest of lights to the full strength black ink create volume, space, and movement across the surface. The fluidity of the medium is both challenging and fun as monochromatic value shapes become the building blocks from which the drawing is built. Students can work from still life or from views out their windows. Materials are simple: a container of black ink; a watercolor brush (not too small); either heavy watercolor paper, Bristol or mixed-media paper if available (otherwise good drawing paper will do); containers for water and gradations of wash, a pencil, and paper towels. The class will be taught live through Zoom, with additional resources provided either through email or Google Classroom. Instructions for using Zoom will be sent prior to the class.
