This workshop will require reasonable drawing skills
Join Anthony Nield on this full day workshop and discover how he develops a line and wash from the drawing stage, he will show you how he inks in the image ready for painting; “I always get better results by applying the ink first then the paint’’.
There will be lots of tips on composition, colour use and mark making with a pen. Anthony will also explain the the qualities and characteristics of the materials he uses and there will be plenty of one to one interaction throughout the day.
About the artist
Anthony is a full time artist and illustrator who has painted in watercolours for many years, but started to take it more seriously whilst working in Bermuda. Watercolour seemed the ideal medium for him to capture the natural beauty of the Island, however recently he has been working more in pen and ink.
Whilst in Bermuda he exhibited with the Bermuda arts society. In his first show, two of his paintings were selected as Presidents choice by the society themselves and were purchased and donated to The Masterworks Foundation Gallery. Some notable Artists that have paintings in the Masterworks Foundation Gallery include Winslow Homer, Georgia O’Keeffe, Ogden Pleissner, and Albert Gleizis to name just a few.
Since returning to the UK Anthony has produced limited edition prints for the MOD, numerous Christmas Cards, as well as paintings of local Kent scenes.
