Overview

Next to pencil, pen is the cleanest, simplest, and least expensive artistic medium to work in. Artists and would-be artists at all levels of achievement can experience the particular gratification that accompanies the expression of a unique and personal artistic vision with pen and ink. Drawing with pen and ink can be totally absorbing for those who become serious about it. To help them achieve their goals, Frank Lohan has prepared Pen and Ink Techniques, a simple, easy-to-follow, how-to-do-it guide that covers everything from the basic tools and materials to the production of advanced effects. Any section of this book can be approached as the artist's needs and level of accomplishments dictate. Exercises for the beginner, crammed with as many problems and solutions dealing with texture, light, and shade as possible, are offered to help the novice get started. Sections for intermediate and advanced artists are also included. Here the subject matter is more artistic and less overworked than in the beginner section.
