Pen & Ink with Oil Rouging: The Barn
The technique of Oil Rouging is very simple. First, a pattern is transferred onto a surface. Then, using pen and ink, you will ink the details of the design. The drawing is sprayed with a protective sealer and you start adding oils with scramblers and blenders. You will take home a finished project. The project is on display at the MTP lobby as well as online.
