A practical course in pen and ink drawing, this helpful guide includes a comprehensive survey of the best pen work in existence. A wide diversity of styles are presented ― from loose sketches to rich, engraving-like studies. Works from all periods include drawings by such masters as D#65533;rer, Holbein, Dor#65533;, Gibson, Rackham, Pyle, Beardsley, and Klinger.
An opening chapter presents the evolution of pen drawing, while subsequent sections allow readers to select topics in self-contained units on line technique; the use of materials, drawing the figure, face and hands; humorous illustration; pen drawing for advertisers; fashion drawing; and landscape and architectural illustration.
An excellent reference for students, this book will also help illustrators and commercial artists further develop their own styles.
