Sketching with Fountain Pens at the SF PEN SHOW!
Sketching with Fountain Pens will show you many ways to use your fountain pens as a drawing tool. There are so many types of nibs, inks and paper the possibilities are endless. I will show you some basic concepts of drawing: line , shape, shadows, etc. I will also show how to add color to your sketch. We will try some sketches of objects and the room. Please bring a sketchbook (watercolor paper would be great) or the paper you like, to class to try out your pens. I will have a table at the Pen Show with my Fearless Felt Watercolor Sketchbooks, and I will bring a few to class as well.
And of course, bring your favorite pens to sketch with. You can also purchase pens at the Pen show. If you want to try using watercolor I suggest getting a pen such as the Platinum Preppy or Prefounte with Platinum Carbon Black ink, which is permanent.
I will be demonstrating and depending on the weather we might go outside and sketch the bay!! Please note you have to pay the admission to the show to take the classes
