Wash and ink tends to be thought of as a watercolor term – but it can describe any medium that can apply a wash of color, and then ink! In this course students will learn to draw illustrative pictures in alcohol or water-based markers, adding pen and ink to define and enhance your drawing!
Lessons are taught in various brands of alcohol markers and water-based markers, with dual technique videos when a particular effect is needed to use the other medium – though in many cases, students can follow an alcohol marker video with water-based markers, as there is not extensive blending required. Early lesson addresses the differences so students are prepared.
This is a Level 4 course; that means a facility with the student’s chosen medium (alcohol or water-based markers) is assumed, as well as comfort with pen and ink. Any kind of pens may be used as well as any brand of markers, with the understanding each will garner different results.

Absolutely fabulous and fun class! Whether you have general sketch markers, alcohol ink markers, aqua brush markers or watercolor, Sandy demonstrates how to do each class piece in various mediums.
Had never done hatching to illustrate shading, nor had I worked with aqua brushes in a larger scale – now I can do both!
This class prepped me for Ink Sketching Techniques class and no doubt many more to come.
Finished panels are beyond what I thought I was capable of doing and definitely worthy of framing. Almost like creating your own adult coloring book and then coloring with whatever mediums you have.
Thanks Sandy, for creating these wonderful classes!
