Pen and Ink Basics: PART 1 Drawing with Lines

There is so much more to pen and ink drawing than a pen and some ink. In this art tutorial on how to start drawing with pen and ink we look at drawing with three different types of pen and concentrating on Line. I explain hatching and cross hatching and try to inspire people into being bold with the use of the pen, to produce different types of line and not to use rules lines. The video is aimed at absolute beginners and those wishing to develop their drawing skills.

Are you an Artist?

At Paul Priestley’s Art World, we believe being an artist is a twofold process. It’s a combination between skills, techniques, creativity and the ability to see things in a way others often can’t. Some people become obsessed with learning the techniques of drawing and painting, but that only takes you so far. You also need the passion and the creativity to experiment and make mistakes.

Only if …

You remember that no one in the world draws and paints like you do. Be proud of the fact. As an artist seek an individual vision, and don’t let anyone say you haven’t got that. Paul Priestley art tutorials are taught with lots of passion, creativity and with a simple step by step approach to inspire everyone. Our art tutorials will help you create your individual vision.
