Floral Ink Illustration Workshop: In the era of technology and digitalization, pen and ink illustrations remain the most difficult artform as the scope of undoing mistakes is low. Many artists still prefer using pen and ink to draw on a piece of paper. They feel that they have more control over the work they do and get better results. Rajasthan Studio curated a Floral Ink Illustration Workshop and invited a self-taught artist Mohona Bhadra. Her artwork is usually inspired by nature, literature and music. Since 2018 she has been working as a full-time artist and an illustrator and done solo and group exhibitions.
The Floral Ink Illustration Workshop Began
Mohona began the workshop by drawing a big flower on her canvas. She suggested participants start drawing directly with their pens instead of a pencil. All the enthusiastic 46 participants worked along with Mohona. Mohona drew the flower petals in imperfect shape to represent the petals in their natural state. During the workshop, participants had several queries regarding the kind of pen and art sheets that has to be used and Mohona promptly cleared all the queries. After drawing the flower, Mohona taught participants how to colour the petals in an aesthetically appealing way using the same pen they used to draw the flower.
Towards The End Of The Workshop
All the participants were carefully following her instructions and were able to keep up with her pace. While filling colour in the petal, Mohona shared a few tips on how to hold the pen and draw along the edges of the petal to give it a three-dimensional effect. She also guided participants on how to draw pollen and add details to the center of the flower. The workshop ended with happy participants flashing their Ink Illustration art on the screen.
Rajasthan studio as always was successful in connecting artists and curating a magical and positive vibe together.
