|Ink vs Gesso|
Kate's full of life, encouragement and support! Now working with big sweeps of line and more brush work with Chinese ink. Great stuff for a girl who's best friend is a 0.25 fine liner pen LOL! Gesso demo later .....
So the 'Bones of the Land' masterclass on to developing some sketching and drawing after venturing outside on a cold but dry winter's day for inspiration. Enjoying working with black Chinese ink and brushes, being mindful of my marks. Tried to choose a subject that I wouldn't normally go for.
Part of the first day was taking a train ride to Perth with the intention of creating a small blind acetate sketch and speed sketching with a larger piece of acetate & black permanent pen capturing lines and textures, details. A wee stop off at Perth station and was delighted to see a wonderful sky roof that emulated the rhythm of the workshop.
