About This Class

This class will take you through a really simple technique using watercolour and pen to create highly decorative sketches. This is a beginners level up, as you will look at inspiration for basic shapes and silhouettes that will provide the basisĀ for the pen line. Furthermore from the inspiration session you will pick out details that appeal to you that can then be added in pen to your sketch. The choice is yours how you interpret the details, adding as much or as little as you prefer. You could use just white gel pen, or a variety of colours, its up to you. Once you have learnt this basic technique you can apply it to any manner of subject matter.

love all of Ms. Wins" classes,and I can only hope she does many more!
Another excellent class to practice watercolor and enhance it with pen. I have myself used this method before, but it was so interesting the way that Ohn Mar Win explained it and how she advises to organize our online reference material for future use. Very helpful!
Amazing. Loved every bit of your teaching.
