    A Detailed Guide

    This book is a great must-have for beginners, as it clearly explains the basic tools needed to start ink sketching. The type of paper and pen you use do matter, and having the correct tools can make learning to sketch in ink much easier. There are some techniques that appear advanced, but they are explained in a straightforward. easy to understand guide. This book is really approachable and inspiring; especially if you are interested in photorealism. Lohan's drawings of nature and buildings are so detailed! I find the trees captivating and the guide makes them easy to re-create. My only complaint is that, it only covers the usual types of line hatching. If you are look for more advanced techniques for pen & ink, you will learn so much more from The Technical Pen.
