Workshop: Bold Sketches with Ink Wash and Watercolor

Do you want to quickly make great small sketches that help you plan and prep for bigger drawings or paintings? Maybe you find the small sketch to be a beautiful finished work of art all by itself. In this three day workshop we will explore ink and watercolors bold, quick sketching mediums and discover strategies for using value and color to create exciting, decisive sketches! Starting in the studio, we will probably also do some outside work (en-plein-air) weather permitting. For the

student who has just begun to explore drawing or painting as well as for intermediate to advanced student artists wishing to enrich their work.
