Pen and Ink with Watercolor in Roumania 1

Pen and Ink with Watercolor in Roumania

There is nothing like painting outdoors for capturing the true mood and feeling of a place. But if you find lugging heavy and bulky painting gear around is too much trouble, try this technique

Sometimes when I am hiking in the mountains I take a small Cotman watercolor sketchbook box with me. I use pen and ink for the drawing on Strathmore paper, then add color. Here are some watercolor sketches I did on a hike in the Roumanian mountains in 2018.

Here are some of the watercolor painting techniques I used.

What Our Students Are Saying About The Virtual Art Academy

Since I started the programme I can see improvements in my composition and use of colour

Since I started the programme I can see improvements in my composition and use of colour 2

My painting “Primitive Pots” recently won the award given by the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour at the recent selected exhibition of the Society of East Anglian watercolourists.

I have been working through the VAA course for over five years and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to improve their painting. There is a huge amount of information on the site and it is well presented and regularly updated and added to. When other members have commented on work I have posted I have found it really useful. When I review my work over the time since I started the programme I can see improvements in my composition and use of colour.
