One of the few art books that doesn't leave you high and dry. There are some brilliant exercises, by a fantastic artist, that are not only practical but thorough, giving you step-by-step instructions on how to draw effectively with ink/pens. This progression enables, and clearly illustrates, how to develop a well-honed piece of art, before moving on to another piece. It is like having your own personal tutor.
Excellent introduction for beginners. Unlike most how-to-draw books, it engages with you at your own level. Shows you how to make marks on the paper and leads you quickly into making drawings of your own. No lofty discourses on different kinds of pen-nib and different kinds of drawing paper: you grab whatever pen and paper is to hand and start making impressive drawings immediately. Kicks off with trees and landscapes, a universal subject. I can't praise this workbook more highly.
I actually bought this book a while ago in paperback and have now downloaded the ebook for free, but no regrets about paying for the paperback as its really helped me to improve my drawings. I've recently started using a dip pen and ink and all of the techniques in this book fit well with my pens. I'm still practising most days and when I've produced my first masterpiece I'll try and post a copy to show how I've done. would highly recommend to any budding artist .
Have the full set of these books , very informative , easy to follow , my drawing has improved loads after doing , and following the exercises in these books , exactly what i was looking for , would highly recomend for those wanting to get into landscape drawing in pen and ink
This is a great book for beginners. Lays out the instructions very clearly and matter-of-factly. You can get stuck in immediately. If you don't want to once again read about which paper and pen to use.... This is a great choice. It truly is an instruction book. I find it really useful.
