Ink Painting Workshop with International Artist Sofie Dieu


a one off workshop not to be missed
In this workshop, you will be introduced to the main principles of ink painting and will learn the central role of water to compose a balanced art- work.
In the morning, you will discover ‘wet on wet’ and ‘wet on dry’ techniques, and will experiment through layering to create light and darkness. You will also discover various texture rendering techniques to add depth and value to your art. In the afternoon, you will be introduced to gold leaf and white ink detailing. You will also create your own art work(s). A short exhibition will be organ- ised by the end of the workshop, for everyone to enjoy each others’ work This workshop also includes tips for ink management, brush and paper qualities, how to use negative and positive space efficiently. By the end of the 6 hours workshop you will have produced: - a series of techniques on an A4 watercolour paper (to which you will be able to refer to in the future) - one A5 practice work, on supplied watercolour paper, to experiment with the newly learned techniques - two A3 paintings(or more if you are prolific!) with your own art.
