Inking with Lyn Olsen

How to loosen up and add some fun with inks.

   Watch Promo

In this course you will learn how to use inks in your work. Be inspired by the movement and shapes that are formed using this technique.

Inks can be used on their own for stunning colour on a blank canvas, blended and mixed to become a background ready for you to add acrylic finishes, or to re-purpose old paintings.

In the final video Lyn shows you completed canvases with inks incorporated using various techniques.

Let your imagination run wild, have fun and let the inks flow!

I have been painting for 15 years after an early retirement and time on my hands.

Travelling my homeland, Australia, with my husband Barry, a keen photographer, the deserts, rain-forests, vast expanses of windswept plains, natural bush-land, farming, cities, country towns, and of course the beautiful coast that surrounds this great land, have inspired my works over the years.

Lyn Olsen Artist Profile FunkyHaving lived in most of these areas, I am drawn to the coast, in particular, the east coast of Australia where we currently live in the beautiful state of Queensland. The wonderful Great Barrier Reef runs from far north Queensland down past central Queensland along the coast. We are very proud to have this icon which is listed as one of the Seven Wonders Of The World on our doorstep.

My art career has evolved over the years from a "dabble" in painting to nearly a full time career. Teaching, exhibiting, and holding workshops keep me busy on the home front, but I enjoy showing my works overseas. Having exhibited in New York, Italy, Miami and Florida has given me "self belief" and the drive to continue forward into the next phase of my career.

Acceptance into art publications and being featured in an episode of Colour In Your Life TV Show which has been shown in Australia and other countries, has opened many doors. I have been busy conducting workshops in many states of Australia and recording online workshops for those who cannot attend in person.

Please feel free to contact me for a commission of your favourite subject. Corporate and private commissions are very welcome.

In closing, I would welcome the opportunity to work with you to develop ideas for your special addition to your home.

Thank you Lyn, Beautiful art work. Interesting to see how the painting emerges from the inks. Thanks for sharing your knowledge on inks. I'm looking forward to combining them into my underwater paintings and other works of art. :)
