In its most elementary form, a pen and ink drawing is stark black marks against a white surface. No dilution of color, no shades of gray. But artists who've spent time inking their way across a page know that drawing with ink can actually be an incredibly subtle and finessed endeavor if you use ink drawing techniques that allow for a slow build up of dark areas for value contrast, and if you are open to the idea of how to draw using line in varied ways.

In our latest free eBook, Pen and Ink Drawing Techniques from Artist Daily: Drawing with Ink to Create Art with Strong Contrast and Surprising Subtlety, you'll find the ink drawing practices of artists past and present that show you how these effects are achieved.

Thank you Courtney!!! I've been tinkering around with pen and ink and watercolor. This will help. Would like to see more stuff like this on this websight. Thanks again.
