Fountain Pen and Watercolor
by Emily Weil
About the instructor: Emily Weil is a painter who works in watercolor and acrylic and needs to paint as much as she needs to breathe. Her work has been shown at Slate Gallery in Oakland and Jco’s Place Gallery in Los Gatos, and she has exhibited at East Bay Open Studios since 2008, when her painting was featured on the directory cover. She obtained a BFA in graphic design from the California College of Arts and Crafts and operates a freelance design business, Red Eye Design, from her home in Alameda where she lives on a floating home. Emily loves to roam around and paint outside at Alameda point, Mare Island, Treasure Island, and various sites in San Diego, trying to capture the feeling of a particular place. She has a daily painting practice and tries to sketch with watercolor or spend time in her studio in Oakland every day.

Description: Learn to use ink pens with flexible nibs in your drawings and draw with different line weights. After doing the drawing in indelible ink, I will show you how to add watercolor to your artwork. Using a flexible nib allows for interesting drawings, and using the Daniel Smith triad keeps the watercolor unified and simple. Together we will learn how to stay loose, unstructured and free. Come with an open heart and open mind and learn new things about using watercolor!
