During this creative illustration workshop, you will learn how to combine different drawing and painting media to add layers to your gel printed image.
You will have the chance to explore both watercolour paints and inks, along with a range of drawing tools. These can be incorporated into line and wash images.
Inspired by the beautiful ever-changing natural environment of the grounds at Shambellie House and the local Solway Coast, we will draw and paint plants, birds, and animals in an illustrative style.
