Product Description

From the Publisher

Highly recommended by Booklist.
"Nice is adept at creating fine detail and an exciting and beautiful range of surfaces. She describes various pens and their maintenance as well as the qualities of specific inks and water-base paints, then offers hundreds of examples of her polished technique. Nice contrasts the use of watercolor alone with the combination of watercolor and pen and ink, demonstrating how texture greatly enhances a painting's dimension and richness." (Booklist, September 1995) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful book to add to anyone's library. This book shows the effects different types of marks a pen creates. It would be a good book to have if pen & ink were the only thing of interest. Fortunately the watercolor sections are just as good and when she combines the two the effect is stunning. Ms. Nice provides ample demonstrations for both the pen & ink and watercolor. She demonstrates different ways of creating texture with watercolor - using alcohol or rock salt for example.
After getting this book I started to practice pen & ink just so I could expand my horizons with my watercolors. The results have delighted me so much most of my new watercolor paintings have pen & ink in them.

A very concise and informative book. Well illustrated and very clear. A great source of inspiration especially for beginners who wish to make a start in this type of artwork. All techniques are covered with superb examples including close-ups. Highly recommended.

I absolutely agree with the other reviewers and for once with the publisher's blurb.
This book is a mine of information on how to achieve mixed pen and watercolour results.
The presentation is all based on stunning examplars with accompanying notes on techniques to achieve these results - loads of inspiration whether you are interested in drawing, watercolouring or in combining the two.

I'm sure the paper version is great, and gives ideas and techniques, but I made a mistake on getting this for my new Paperwhite Kindle. I realised it would be in black & white and that's not really a problem, but the handwritten notes and details on the sketches are essentially not visible / readable. Too small, not fine enough. Lesson learned, and one limitation of Kindle found. (otherwise, I love the Kindle for reading).
