Drawing & Painting with Watercolour Pencils

Watercolour is primarily a painting medium, but in recent years the number of watercolour drawing tools: pencils, crayons, sticks, and – more recently – markers, has grown to a point where any self respecting watercolour painter might need to take stock and look at the potential of drawing with watercolour. This course explores ideas about using watercolour as both a drawing and painting medium.

What will you do on the course?

  • draw with the various watercolour drawing tools and get a feel for how they work and the marks they can made
  • dilute the colours drawn on the paper
  • overlay watercolour drawing and painting marks to add subtlety to your work
  • create both realistic and part-abstracted drawings using the various drawing and painting tools available to the modern watercolour painter
