This workshop designed to marry up the drawn mark with printmaking. Explore the beautiful line. Hard or soft, sharp, fuzzy, thin or fat.
We will start the day loosening up with some sketching around Westbury Farm. These sketches will form the basis for printmaking. The drypoint mark has a unique quality giving immediate and raw impact to sketched lines. You will be shown how to build up your drypoint paper plate creating line and tone to add depth and how to ink and wipe the plate to show subtle variations. Translucent colour can then be added directly onto the plate.
