Become a better pen and ink artist! Learn techniques for capturing the values, textures and contours you see in the world around you.
Learn how to draw with pen and ink alongside artist Paul Heaston. Start with how to capture form using contour lines, and make your work more expressive with gesture lines. Next, Paul will guide you step by step through creating gorgeous ink washes that rival watercolors. Switch to fine-tip pens as you use a variety of hatching techniques to create shadows, shading and more. Then, learn methods for building value quickly, as well as how to achieve incredible detail and remarkably even tones with the stipple technique. You'll even find out how to draw complex textures and patterns such as foliage, animal fur, stonework and reflective surfaces. Along the way, you'll gain a better understanding of when to apply each technique for your best results.
