This class will look at how to ink using tools like a good ol’ fashioned ballpoint pen, fineliners and a brush pen. Challenges like Inktober are exciting ways to build good daily sketching habits, but seem restrictive by only using 1 medium: Ink. Yet, ink is extremely diverse and can be daunting.In my supplies video, you will see that there are a vast array of inks and tools that can be used with ink, with Eastern and Western tools and techniques blending like ink in water.
We will look at 3 popular tools that are simple to use and very accessible (in terms of price and being readily available worldwide) – brush pens, fineliners and ballpoint pens. We will explore them by creating the same marks with each tool to see exactly how they can be used in your artwork. Each lends itself to different styles and they appeal to us all in different ways.
This class will also teach you warm-ups and sketchbook techniques that you can use to gain inspiration and master your mark-making.
This class is for everyone who wants to learn more about ink, but is a great place to start your inking journey if you are a beginner or refine your skills at higher levels.
This class is about being expressive and non-judgemental. It focuses on play and facing an intimidating medium head-on, yet stress-free.
