4.0 out of 5 stars Quick starter guide to pen and ink
Customer Video Review     Length:: 0:35 Mins
This is a simple and straightforward book for anyone who wants to learn drawing with pen and ink. Half of the book is in tutorial style with techniques that are easy to follow. It covers the usual types of line hatching and more importantly how to make your illustration more picturesque.

The other half of the book is sort of a gallery...

3.0 out of 5 stars New pen and ink artist
Very old-fashioned I would not have purchased this item if I had gone to a library and seen the contents and realised how bad the illustrations are. Some are very dark and don't acuately portray what they are meant to. Not recommended as a learning tool

This review is from: Pen and Ink Techniques (Dover Art Instruction) (Paperback)
Length:: 0:35 Mins

This is a simple and straightforward book for anyone who wants to learn drawing with pen and ink. Half of the book is in tutorial style with techniques that are easy to follow. It covers the usual types of line hatching and more importantly how to make your illustration more picturesque.

The other half of the book is sort of a gallery but rather limited in variety. Still there are plenty of accompanying tips.

This book covers mainly drawing architectural stuff, animals, boats, the usual topics cover by pen and ink. The coverage on portrait drawing is limited at best, and the result doesn't seem too good either.

It's a quick starter guide recommended for beginners.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good value and great for beginners, 21 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Pen and Ink Techniques (Dover Art Instruction) (Paperback)
Pen & Ink Techniques

I've bought half a dozen books recently for pen and ink and this is one of the better ones. He describes and shows the techniques and steps very clearly and there's a nice range of exercises and subject to try and draw yourself. Not quite as good as Claudia Nice books but he runs a very close 2nd!

Nice book with enough information to give you a good start on how to work with ink. It has a lot of different exercises and examples to copy and begin working with ink. I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn how to draw with this media.
