Pen and ink workshop with SAA tutor Peter Robbins- Lindisfarne Castle

Picture supplied by Peter

Peter working on watercolour paper with a black pen.

 Peter's finished painting with simple watercolour washes.

I used my own photo which was taken in a similar position but giving more height to the Castle. I used a graphite ink pen for the castle and a quink fountain pen for the middle distance and the foreground. I should have drawn the closer posts after the washes were applied as the water caused the ink to run into the sky. But you learn from your mistakes.

Finished painting 200 lb Bockingford 15x11 inches.
