Do I need to be good at drawing to join?
Each of the lessons in this course comes with a sketch template that you can follow if you are new to drawing.  Some of the tutorials are super easy and some are a little more complicated. However, My main goal is to give you the tools to start drawing and painting yourself. Plus this style is perfect if for a more loose (maybe wonky) style. 

What are we making?

In this course you will learn how to paint in Ink (line) and Watercolour (wash).

It is a quick and loose style that is perfect for outdoor observational art, for loose illustrations and for sketchbook work.

Why do I love Line & Wash so much?

In Line & wash we combine waterproof ink with watercolour paint and when I first started to use this technique it blew my mind! The fact that I could make a drawing and then paint over it was just amazing. 

Back then I was pretty good at drawing but I used to find painting really hard still. This way I could make myself a 'colouring in' make a drawing first and then paint over it. Nowadays I often paint outside the lines and I enjoy that freedom a lot too!

What my creatives say

What Materials Do I need? 

For this course I would recommend the following materials:

  • a HB sketch pencil, eraser and sharpener

  • a waterproof ink pen, fine liner or brushpen

  • Watercolour brushes, a container for water, cloth and a palette. 

  • Water based paint; watercolour paint or gouache

  • Watercolour paper or a sketchbook suitable for watercolours

It is very important that the ink for the line part of each artwork is waterproof!

If you would like to draw as part of a fun and inclusive group, why not check out the Makings & Musings Community. 

In the community we draw and paint together four times a month, you will find art tutorials and lots of inspiration.

Hands on approach

I love a no-nonsense approach to art as the best way to learn is by creating.

In this course we will do minimal sketching we will start painting from day one and I invite you to draw along from the start. 

 

 My hope is that you will carry on painting after you have completed this course and that I help you finding your own creative voice in the process.
