Details


Line drawing in pen and ink is a particularly useful skill for botanical illustrators to master.

During this new course, working with dip pens and black ink on paper, various methods of creating form will be introduced and practised. These will include stipple, hatching and variation of line.

We'll work on a couple of botanical subjects using these methods. Subjects will be first drawn in pencil and then transferred to final paper.

Beginners welcome – this course is suitable for all abilities. The tutor will provide dip pens and black ink for participants.
