Pen and ink and Watercolor Exploration with Ann Thomas
Saturday, October 1: 9:30 am-2 pm
No matter what skill level you're at, spend time exploring these mediums and improving your skills in a relaxed atmosphere. We will work on creating more expressive lines combined with loose vibrant watercolor for more energy-filled sketches by letting go! Composition, contrast, watercolor techniques and perspective are some of the things we will address. Students should bring images to work on and a lunch if they desire.
(Suggested for participants who have taken Ann's classes previously). A supply list is available online.

Option One -Waterproof (felt tip) ink pens in several size tips, a good one is Faber-Castell 4PITT Artist Pens, Black with S, M, F and B, small, medium, fine and brush. OR
Option Two - any portable sketch pen with waterproof ink, there are some very nice fountain pens that I use for sketching – example: Lamy pen, Noodler, Platinum Carbon Ink Pen, and one of my favorites the Very Fine Waterproof Sharpie pen.
Sketch pad, a size you are comfortable using, not too small please! with paper heavy enough to accept watercolor. I use an inexpensive 80 lb sketch or mixed media pad from Blick Art.
Soft pencils, sharpener and kneaded eraser
Portable water container
Small set of watercolors or watercolor pencils. Watercolor brushes in several sizes, I use a # 6 and #10 round with fine tips, 1 or 2 brushes are sufficient.
Rags or paper towel for cleanup
Portable chair for onsite sketching
Students are encouraged to bring any photos they would like help in developing and to work on in case of inclement weather.
*I encourage students to bring the tools they already have and are comfortable working with. This is a very portable class, and the media we use should be quick drying and easy to carry.
