About This Class

9ff85c1c

In this class we'll be combing, expressive and loose watercolour with dip pen details that will add character and linear quality to your sketches. I've been using a dip pen for over twenty years and recently I started to experiment with the ink line with watercolour as part of my sketchbook practice. I really love the quality of line it gives just by changing the pressure on the nib, from fine hairlines to dramatic strokes.

I learnt so much from my own sketchbook studies and I'd really like to to share with you some of my top tricks and tips for this loose and free technique.

We'll start with a rough guide to nibs, holders and inks, before moving onto a bit of ink line practice. Then we'll introduce the dip pen to watercolour. I'll show you many of my own examples and give lots of info about working in this loose and free way. This class is great if you're just a beginner of if you want to add that extra element to your own watercolor sketches.

The video classes start with the basic principles than gradually become more challenging as you gain confifence in working in this manner. All the video lessons are packed full of handy hints so you can really have fun with this and take advantage of the technque to its fullest.

a fun and engaging class. Thanks Ohn Mar
As usual, great instructions and inspiring demonstrations. I always learn so much from your class. I would love it if you could include the reference pictures that you are painting from. Also would love to know the names of the colors you use.
Love all Ohn Mar's classes! Love, love, love!
