INTRODUCTION and TIPS
drawing and watercolour
Here are a collection of images and videos that explore the medium of drawing. Included are a range of works from traditional and representational modes of drawing to modern and contemporary practices that are more experimental and expressive and that cross over with other disciplines such as sculpture, installation art and land art.
Also included are sections on beloved Illustrators such as Quentin Blake and Edward Lear, as well as sections on comic art and cartooning.
There's a myriad of styles and approaches to learn from and enjoy. Take a look and be inspired to start making your own drawings on or off the page.

WATERCOLOUR MATERIALS DEMONSTRATION
Maria Doyle, an Artist Practitioner with Art in Hospital offers a short demonstration of ways to work with watercolour paints and pencils.
As part of the remote strands of our programme found in our postal project, seen on Instagram and Twitter, Art in Hospital have been sending in art materials to the projects and patients we would normally be working with in person. This video demonstration originally made for the patients Maria works with is also helpful to anyone interested in beginning to experiment with watercolour drawing and painting.
