Overview


A clear and concise guide to pen-and-ink work, this step-by-step presentation features 37 demonstrations — each with multiple sketches that show the progression from pencil sketch to ink outline and from shadows and detail to the completed work. The drawings advance from easy to complex, accompanied by advice for artists at every level of experience.
Written in a direct and engaging style and richly illustrated throughout, this guide discusses the fundamentals of pen and ink as well as materials and basic techniques. It addresses common problems such as foreshortening, breaking up monotony, and executing delicate details. Sketches include rustic scenes of barns and other buildings as well as landscapes and portraits of owls, deer, squirrels, ducks, and other wildlife. Equally valuable for classroom use and independent study, this volume also forms a practical sourcebook and reference.
