Workshop in Gum & Ink with Dave Pentin – 2hrs

Cornish Artist Dave Pentin uses an unusual gum and acrylic ink technique to paint landscapes.

During the workshop he will teach you his unique painting technique which uses a series of alternating layers, applying a gum arabic masking solution, followed by washes of permanent acrylic ink until the original picture has disappeared. The painting is then washed off to reveal what is underneath.

During this2hr session, Dave will help students learn and experiment with his gum and ink technique and talk about the tools and skills involved such as stretching paper, deciding on a composition, colour mixing, sketching out, layering with ink and applying a gum mask.
