Workshop: Expressive Rocks & Trees with Robert Dutton

Join professional artist Robert Dutton live from England for a 2-3hr workshop using Derwent Inktense. Filmed live on 3rd December 2020.


**See workshop reference pictures and recommended materials below**

Robert will take you through the painting below from start to finish. He will demonstrate how to create a richly layered painting using his hallmark expressive painting techniques, combining different Derwent Inktense paints, sticks and water soluble pencils to create a uniquely rich and colourfully layered painting. With exciting textures and strong compositional shapes and forms your finished painting is sure to impress!

“Since discovering Derwent Inktense I’ve use this exciting drawing and painting medium a lot and I mean - A LOT! From the handy and portable compact ‘go anywhere do anything” Paint Pan Travel Set of 12 colours to the full range of 72 Inktense sticks of glorious colour choices to select from, the versatile media has proven time and time again to have great validity in my work. From the lightest delicate washes to rich and deep supercharged darks, there is so much you can do with this exciting media - I love it”.
