Another great teacher...
Long ago I purchased a copy of Rendering in Pen and Ink by Arthur Guptill. I think this is one of the finest books around for learning the art of pen and ink. He passed away in 1956; the same year I was born, so some of his instruction is a little dated as when he refers to inkpots and blotters. The exercises he includes, however, are timeless, and I will use this as the basis of my practice for a long time to come (speaking that by faith). Anyone wanting to learn pen and ink techniques should find a copy of this book to guide you! I see it's also available as a downloadable ebook!
And now I will disappear for a while to actually practice!
