Robert proceeded to demonstrate his approach to line and wash using a rigger brush (a progression from a sharpened matchstick) and Indian ink to draw directly onto the page commenting on concept and composition. After a short drying time and tea break, Robert applied washes of colour all the time generously sharing tips and techniques. There was an audible intake of breath from many in the audience when Robert washed over some areas with a dark wash for shadows, providing dramatic contrast and achieving completion.
A thoroughly enjoyable evening seemed to be had by all. It was also lovely to welcome so many new members.
