23 July 2021

If you have been wanting to try your hand at creating artworks using ink and watercolour, this Design Journey online course is just for you!

Covering the fundamentals of ink and watercolour art, the course will help you build your skills and teach you how to combine the two mediums to create unique works of art.

In this course, you will learn some great ink work techniques using STAEDTLER Pigment Liners. Ink drawing can be uniquely challenging as it’s difficult to correct mistakes with this medium, so these techniques and suggested tools will help provide you with a stress-free drawing experience.
