Ink and Watercolour wash

I love working with fluid media and have enjoyed Sumi E…. Japanese Ink painting. Combining my watercolour techniques with  ink gives the watercolours strength and practise with soft goat hair, and calligraphy brushes and ink reinforces the meditative value of a fluid approach. These photos show some steps in completing a work for a class and some of my students at work (June 2010)
