We ordered colored inks this year and thought we should learn how to use them. I showed my students different examples of techniques and let them experiment with styles to figure out a process that best suited them. They choose a technique by means of brush stokes as a form of expression. The project was strictly brush and ink. Students used a camera to take photos of their subject matter. Approx. side of projects 18" x 24"
Now for some shameless self-promotion. I've been writing and illustrating a book about the 80's Denver Punk Rock Scene that I was a part of. Below are a few illustrations using strictly brush and ink from the project. To see more, click here
Kudos to Mr. H. for suppling my painting class with his skull collection. The students drew from life and used a black Crayola marker. The background was in introduction to mixing oil paints. Size of projects 18" x 24"
|The first step is to crate a pencil drawing, followed by using the marker and a paintbrush and water to create the shading effect.
