Pen & Ink Sketching: Step by Step by Frank J. LohanA 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.

The realistic pen and ink artwork of Sue Pownall portrays the essence of her surroundings as she travels around the world, exploring locations as diverse as the UK, Italy, Qatar, Oman, Sudan, South Korea, and the US to name just a few! Sue's perceptive eye captures the nuances of each culture she explores, from the Pharoah statues of Sudan to the stone churches of rural Italy.

This pen and ink drawing lesson leads you through the various stages in the development of our illustration. It is a mixed media work on paper, using pencil, Indian ink and watercolor. Our slide show demonstrates how a detailed drawing of this type is built up in a series of layers that gradually contribute to the overall effect of the work. This tutorial should help you to develop your basic drawing skills in pencil, the use of cross-hatching and stippling techniques with Indian ink, and your watercolor painting skills. For our illustration we chose a location with a flat frontal view. The way that the buildings stack up helps us to convey a sense of depth without the complications of perspective drawing. Buildings viewed from a high eye level are a very suitable subject for ink drawing as the flat planes of their walls and roofs lend themselves naturally to techniques such as cross hatching and stippling.
