Join artist Hilary Mackay for a 'Pen and Wash Workshop' on Saturday 24th October from 1.00pm - 4.00pm.
Hilary Mackay is a respected Canberra artist renowned for her pen and wash technique, along with many other artistic disciplines including acrylic, watercolour, and oil. She is part of The Artist Shed group, and has exhibited both there and at Bungendore Fine Arts Gallery. She regularly holds workshops in many locations and venues in the Canberra region. In collaboration with the photographic base of gallery twenty seven, this workshop will explore the concept of working from an original photo, transferring the elements and concept to a drawing as the basis for an artwork using the pen and wash technique.
Participants will be limited to 12, and all materials will be supplied for an all up cost of $50. Bring your own photo to work from, and you will be guided through the process of selecting either the whole image or part of the image which to use, creating the sketch and drawing, and finally applying the wash technique for your finished work.
