In this course you will learn how to create evocative illustrations using pen, ink, and fine liners. You will discover various methods to use ink for different effects, starting with line work, hatching and stippling.

Your experienced tutor will demonstrate how to effectively use cross hatching and stippling techniques to add depth and atmosphere to an illustration.

From fine liners and dip pens to ball point and brush pens: you will get the opportunity to explore various tools and techniques to create light, tone, volume, and texture. You will observe elements and objects from nature and learn how to draw them by studying their form and shadows.
