Inktense Portraits

Draw a portrait using Inktense pencils and/or blocks. Join us to see how you can use the exciting Inktense products to work with a free drawing approach that’s loose in style and full of painterly marks. We’re working on fabric with this one, but the techniques will also work on paper too.

Inktense Rubbings: Background Pattern

You might have a portrait drawn with Inktense, or maybe a monoprint worked on fabric with tricky, empty background areas. In this workshop Laura will demonstrate how you can make rubbing plates and take rubbings with Inktense blocks to fill those areas with pattern and colour.

Run time:  31 minutes

Presenter: Laura Kemshall

Inktense Traced Print

Drawing is often the best way to start a watercolour, acrylic or mixed media painting, but what if you you feel your drawing skills aren’t strong, or maybe you just want a fast and effective way to get your image down on paper so you can quickly get started with your painting? In this workshop Linda will demonstrate her technique for creating that drawing which will be the perfect foundation for your painting.

Run time:  17 minutes

Presenter: Linda Kemshall
