Forge an Old Master: The Japanese Art of Ukiyo-e





When I first started getting really serious about art, I learned a lot about drawing and painting by copying classical woodcuts from Japan. I’m going to show you how to do so too and with a bit of luck you’ll produce something to be proud of – you might even surprise yourself. I’ve taught these tutorials in classes to adults and children as young as eight years old, and they have all improved their skills in watercolour in the process. The lesson is accessible to anyone who can follow a set of simple instructions. Of course, we’re not actually going to forge an Old Master – it’s a lesson, but I think you’ll enjoy it. At the end of this article, you can download the extensive lesson to make a set of 3 watercolours. I’d like to continue the theme and introduce more “Forge an Old Master” exercises. Feel free to make your own suggestions, and please vote for the next one at the end of this article, to help me choose the next lesson to devise.
