Capture the details of life in pen and ink!

Using the classic method of drawing with a crow quill pen and India ink, artist George Olson introduces you to the art of pen-and-ink drawings accented with watercolor. The appeal of these exquisite gems lies in their very simplicity. You'll learn how to create one-of-a-kind works of art using minimal tools, straightforward inking techniques and the easiest of watercolor washes.

Hands-on exercises start you on your way to mastering the pen by drawing various line qualities and textures. Next, learn how to add soft glazes of color to build depth and evoke that loose, lyrical feeling ... the kind of sparkle that cannot be achieved using ink alone. Nine step-by-step demonstrations teach you everything you need to know to create enchanting landscapes, flowers, portraits, animals, buildings and interior scenes.

Based on Olson's four decades of experience with this charming art form, Pen and Ink with Watercolor will help you achieve happy results quickly, easily and joyously.
