Exploring Ink

Julian Vilarrubi
£120

This course explores using ink in all its manifestations, as a material for drawing and painting. You will work from still life set-ups that the tutor has prepared as well as a life model in one session. Ink is a seemingly basic medium which can be used in a myriad of expressive ways. This course will introduce you to the ideas and methods of working which will take your ink work into new and unexplored areas.

Suitable for all levels.

White Room, Phoenix Art Space

Some materials will be provided but students will need to bring the following:

  • Brushes – a minimum of 3 soft round acrylic brushes or equivalent. Preferred sizes: 4, 8, 12,18 or as near as possible.
  • Dipping pen and a minimum of 3 detachable nibs: fine, medium and large tips.
  • Masking tape.

Julian studied painting at the Royal Academy Schools, London where he won the Richard Ford Award for travel in Spain. He has made landscape paintings based on travels throughout Europe and Russia. He works en plein air as well as in the studio and drawing underpins all his work. In the last four years he has been focusing on working from the figure using an iPad and he considers this approach to be as valid as any traditional method. For him the iPad offers a whole range of exciting possibilities for the artist. He lives in Brighton where he works in his studio, undertakes commissions and teaches drawing and painting.
