History of Pocket Sketching Invented by Kath Macaulay

Started in about ’86 by accident on a painting trip as an offshoot to ‘wash drawing’, a difficult technique done with India ink. The India ink indelible line is drawn and immediately ‘run’ with water from a brush to obtain different values, or shades, to either side of the line. If you’re not quick enough, you get just a line drawing that can never be changed. If ink spills, it’s permanent, including on your beige leather upholstery.
I picked up a pen to write to a friend. The brush was always in my hand, by habit. I hit the line, also by habit, and it ran just like India ink. Until used with water, the line can be ‘run’ for years giving a complete value scale. Unlike India ink, it never spills. It not only makes a wash drawing, it mixes perfectly with watercolors, providing the ‘shade’ of almost every color.
Bio Kath Macaulay

Summary
As an artist, I enjoy capturing the moment. There is always a reason to paint something that catches the eye and the mind. Most of my paintings are designed to give the viewer a feeling of serenity, and of having visited the same location. As an instructor I delight in teaching my easy, totally portable, no-clean-up technique to beginners and professionals alike. For the beginner it is an open door to art and seeing the world with a new eye. For the advanced artist, it is a totally portable system for 10 to 25 minute sketches when standing in line, hiking, in a café, on horseback, anywhere. The workshops are well organized, fast, loaded with information. Motto: Learn enough to play for a lifetime!
