Create your own personalised Traditional Tattoo Flash artwork using ink and watercolour techniques in this 2.5 hour workshop with artist Joshua Thomas.
You’ll be introduced to the fundamentals of American Traditional Tattoo Flash, identifying key imagery, symbolism and the importance of elements such as bold colour and strong linework, before learning some basic watercolour application and blending techniques which you’ll use to create your final piece of art.
You’ll spend the second half of the class working on your final composition, with the option of choosing a design from the flash sheets provided or an original design that you’ve created (if you are ok with this Josh)?. We’ll provide you with everything you need – high quality art paper, inks, watercolours, paintbrushes and reference images.
Create a timeless piece of art worthy of display in your home or studio, or if you’re really keen you could even get it tattooed!
While Josh has only been painting and pursuing art seriously for the last 2 years, he has been getting tattooed since the age of 17, and has an affinity with American Traditional Tattoo Art.
Previously working alongside Steen Jones at Few and Far Collective, Josh has enjoyed seeing his art go beyond his own hands and into the hands of other’s, and is currently focusing on perfecting his art in preparation for his next venture.
Regardless of what medium he has on hand, Josh loves exploring all forms of art, but early American Traditional Tattoo art is definitely where his heart lies!
