Cornwall Coastline Workshop Tour with Ian Fennelly
Welcome to Ian Fennelly's Cornwall Coastline Workshop Tour! In this series of four online workshops Ian sketches scenes from the gorgeous Cornish coastline and shares his sketching process. Watch over Ian's shoulder in real time as he goes from blank page to completed sketch--from composing the sketch to creating a basic outline, then splashing in some background colour, then calming adding depth and tone with grey markers, then really going deeper with all the lovely details. Students can sketch along with the reference photos provided.

Cornwall Coastline Workshop Supply List
- Spiral Bound A3 Watercolour Sketchbook (approx 11 3/4 x 16 1/2 inches) 300lb or loose paper hot press. I prefer Fabriano brand. Other brands are fine but it's important to work with paper that is the same approximate size so that you will have enough room to fit in all the details.
- Tombow Brush Pens – black + a range of greys: N60, N65, N79, N95.
- Fine liner pens – from 0.1 – 0.8 Pilot, Staedtler, Faber Castell, Derwent – any of these brands are fine. I like Derwent .3 and .2 and 0.05 and .5. I also use Mitsubishi Uniballs .5, broad and micro that are watersoluble.
- Watercolour pan set– I use Winsor & Newton but any good brand will do.
- Watercolour brushes – variety of sizes flats (I call them pastry brushes) and riggers.
