Has drawing with marker always been intimidating? It won’t be after today!
Lose your inhibitions using some simple techniques with water soluble black marker and a paintbrush. Play with abstraction or focus on realistic imagery – the choice is yours, so pick your comfort level. Bring some photos for reference – preferably ones you have taken yourself or been given permission to use. We will do a little “playing” with the medium then work on a couple of finished images for the majority of the class.
