Traveling Artists: Ink, Watercolor/WC Pencil Techniques

Instructor: Fernando Porras


Can you finish a base-wash and your wine before it starts raining and make it to the station in time for the last train? Soon you will! Join our class to learn how to tackle wonderful problems like this and a good number of great techniques to make the best out of your watercolors when you travel. Capture the essence of a moving crowd, of the beautiful reflections on a wet cobbled street and of the perfect morning sky with quick pencils, flowing layers of color, and accentuating ink lines and splashes. The class will focus on quick sketching pencil techniques and how to make them disappear under great watercolor washes to capture the essence of the places you love. Learn how to use permanent ink lines and watercolor pencils to create memorable sketches during your trips. Tips on how to use new technologies on your smart-phone and computer so they become part of your tool-kit will complement this fun class.
