Day one, Colour Blending with Martin Jackson.
We started with a discussion of inks to use, some lightfast, some not so much! but nice to work with, i.e. Dr. Marten's , old Rotring transparent acrylic inks, etc. We started with a demonstration by Martin and then we were set loose to try what we had in ink or Martin's Magic Color inks. We also watched demos using Nicholson's Peerless watercolours, gouache and writing on black paper. A full day with lots of writing on good paper
Martin's demo piece - I think using Peerless Watercolors- who knew?! I have a booklet of them and haven't really done anything with them since buying them as the "must have" at an international conference, year unknown.
Martin's demo piece using gouache (I think!)
a sample of participants work - can't believe I forgot to photograph my page and I left it at the venue overnight...
Martin's demo piece on black paper, using very subtle gouache colours with a touch of Dr. Marten's Bleedproof white added.
Stay tuned for day two!
Are you impressed John?! blog entry up on the day it happened?! this was just for you! in case you were feeling left out of the action...
Please excuse my photography (Bev) as I didn't use a flash so as to not distract people. I didn't do the work justice.
