INK with more than a hint of Watercolour
Tutor: Jackie Devereux Course Code: 3422-03

Summary

If you think watercolour with ink is scary, then you really need to try this out! It's more than scary, it's exciting, exhilarating, and amazing. From baby steps, immediately into the deep end, where fear goes out of the window within the first 30 seconds.

Description

This three day workshop will take you on a journey like no other, and the great thing is that you can just pick up a stick and start!  We shall explore a variety of methods and subject matter and inevitably run out of time before we run out of ideas.  Do join me .....

Jackie Devereux

Greatly influenced by Japanese art and the light of southern France, Jackie’s work ranges from pure contemporary watercolour on a large scale, to delicate pencil and expressive pen and ink – all experimental in nature. She has travelled extensively and as drawing is an integral part of her work and development her sketchbook is her constant companion. An experienced adult tutor, Jackie enjoys working with groups and sharing her ideas and techniques and watching others develop their potential.

Jackie’s work is well published and collected internationally. She has exhibited widely throughout the UK and France, as well as in the USA and Japan. She has shown with the RWS, RI and with the Society of Graphic Fine Art regularly in Menier Gallery, Southwark and Bankside Gallery, London. Jackie was elected President of the Society of Graphic Fine Art for five years.
