Pen and Ink Techniques

The library is full of gifts. I came upon a book, Pen and Ink Techniques by Frank Lohan. Looking at the Amazon page, it seems that he has several books on drawing. My copy was published in 1978, so he has been teaching drawing for quite a while.
No surprise, I continue to learn.


Naturally, these were done with a tiny .01 pen. Ahh, the struggle that artists face! But, oh, I have learned so much.


Well, the USA is a hot country this year and it's our turn here in California. The temperatures are to be around 104 for the next several days. Stay cool.

The learning never stops with drawing- one of the most wonderful things.

Lovely fine work. I will have to look for thse books. Such a fine pen to use . It will feel strange to go back to using thicker, heavier ones

These are great! I was interested to see this post as I have just had a try at some pen and ink. I intend to post it soon but am procrastinating! Hope to see some more of your pen and ink work soon.
