Pen & Wash ‘coping with busy scenes’ with Max Hale
Saturday 27th June 2020
10am – 4pm
All abilities welcome
This one day workshop is a taster session for ink pen and watercolour washes that make really interesting and beautiful pieces of art. This quick technique is becoming increasingly popular for capturing busy street scenes. I will show you how, picking out key features without feeling overwhelmed. There is a nak to it!
During this day session you will learn the structure and methods of using ink and watercolour in harmony, how to balance the two complementary mediums to obtain the best results. Ink and wash is not new but you will benefit from Max's early experiences as an artist/illustrator to explore the vast possibilities that using the marriage these two different mediums affords.
The day will use street scenes as a genre to build your skills and to give you a really good grounding on the methods of using pure line with beautiful colour washes. Students will work from either their own images, or those provided by the tutor.
Suitable for all levels of artist whether new to this style or practiced.
Max has been teaching at Pegasus Art for four years and has built up a popular following of students. He attended Harrow School of Art where he studied Fine Art and was tutored by Ken Howard OBE RA. He became an apprentice illustrator in a London studio but found his way back to fine art, his true passion. He has been teaching for over twenty five years, whilst exhibiting and painting throughout. He writes for The Artist magazine, among others, and is an Ambassador for Royal Talens. He has had paintings exhibited in most areas of the country and many in London his passion to tutor and motivate others is obvious and works in all mediums.
All attendees receive 5% off in our shop adjacent to Studio One at Pegasus Art.
Tea & coffee will be provided throughout the day. Please bring a packed lunch as there is no cafe at Pegasus.
