Jean Mackay - Ink and Watercolor Basics for Sketchers (Online Class Recording)

Date Recorded: Friday, May 14, 2021

Sketching with ink and watercolor is a fresh and portable approach to nature and urban sketching alike, but mastering basic watercolor techniques often eludes sketchers. Join Jean Mackay as she demonstrates the fundamentals of using watercolor to enliven your sketches. You’ll practice washes, color mixing, layering colors, and various approaches to combining ink and watercolor to build your skills and confidence and produce more satisfying results in your sketchbook.  

Jean Mackay is an artist, educator, and naturalist. She has been keeping an artist journal for more than nearly 20 years a way to study and share the beauty and diversity of nature, as well as to record the art of everyday living. Working in all kinds of settings, from tide pools to farm fields to her own backyard, Jean’s journals reflect a keen eye for detail and profound sense of wonder. Jean teaches at the Hog Island Audubon Camp in Maine and at the Art School of Columbia County in New York. Her blog, Drawn In, shares the ordinary, yet extraordinary things that she encounters close to home and farther afield. www.jeanmackayart.com
