 About This Class

 Hi Everyone,

Watch as I teach you the Traditional / Ink and Wash Watercolor Technique, a 3000-year-old technique that is still being used by artists of the present. Ink and wash will bring depth, expression, and boldness to your watercolor paintings. No experience needed and no student ever left behind! 

As a professional landscape artist, I've painted thousands of watercolor paintings and studied hundreds of books from the old classical masters and those who have shaped our Modern Times.

Working in the studio, sketching in the field or on the street corner, this technique will bring home the 'gold' and with amazing simplicity and ease of execution.

Watch as I teach you this simple technique step-by-step. This is an expert technique used by professional artists. Within a few minutes, you'll see how the Ink and Wash brings a confidence in your design and to  your work that produces expressive, bold and engaging watercolor paintings. 

By the end of this 20 Minute Lesson you'll be able to: 

> Create bold and expressive  Watercolors with a simple mastery of the Ink and Wash Style 

> Relax and learn—you'll never be left behind and no experience is required to master this wonderfully simple technique.                                                                          

In my 30 years of painting, I've discovered that 90% of professional watercolor painters use 3 techniques: The No Drips, No Slips; The California Style, and The Ink and Wash . 

This course focuses on the Ink and Wash. Enroll in my other Skillshare courses to master the other 2 professional techniques and watch as I reveal other simple secrets of the craft!  

Let Ron Demonstrate how the 'East' set the stage for 3 millenniums of watercolor painting with Ink and Wash. The Ancients dipped their fingers and charged their brushes with pure black ink, deftly drew and boldly washed color onto their creative efforts for future generations to admire.

Doing Drawing is a perfect success plan for the beginner and the experienced artist, designer, digital doodler, watercolorist, and anyone who wants to really learn what you do when you draw.. This is the first of five videos that will bring you to a much higher level of drawing competence and creativity.

Join me for a creative experience that will get some started and others re-booted. You have never approached drawing like this...and you will never draw the same after you start.
