How To: Introduction to Illustration
Alison Woodward from Opus Downtown Vancouver illustrates how you can draw on your imagination, rendering it on the page in washes of ink and watercolour. She shares her approach, techniques, and preferred materials in this informative Opus How-To Video.
When learning how to illustrate with ink and watercolour one of the most important things to consider is the paper that you are using. If you use a lower grade paper, the time it will take for your mediums to dry will be lengthy to say the least. That’s why we chose to use our newest high end watercolour paper for this demonstration. Opus Finest Watercolour Paper meets all the needs for even the most discerning watercolourist.
Watch the video to see the process and the final results!
