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.
