Description

Learn the Art of Pen and Ink Wash

Join Chris Koehler for this exciting new workshop and learn to combine pen & ink drawing with ink wash — in black & white and in color.

We’ll start by exploring line work, mark making and shading with technical pens. Then we’ll bring in ink wash in greyscale and color to make images that are dimensional and rich.

We’ll also learn the difference between pigment and dye based inks, how to use technical and brush pens and to create value with a variety of techniques.

We’ll end up with two beautiful pieces — a moody seascape and a vibrant bird portrait  — and a wealth of knowledge, tips and techniques.

Join award-winning illustrator and SBS favorite Chris Koehler as he shares the amazing tools and techniques he uses for Marvel, Universal Pictures and the NY Times. In a few (and fun) short hours, you’ll know the essentials of this beautiful art form.

    “Chris Koehler was inspirational and a great teacher. Even though he is a very experienced illustrator, he made the workshop accessible to the beginner. I learned so much, and I can actually put these techniques into practice. And my work will not look like Chris’ work, but it will be in my own style. 

    Chris encouraged us to create our own ideas- not to just reproduce the reference photograph. This workshop was really game changing for me. Thanks so much!”
