Pen & Ink Art

In fine art, the term ‘pen and ink’ denotes a drawing technique involving the use of black and other coloured inks which are applied to a support (generally paper) with either a dip pen or a reservoir pen.

Aside from pencil, pen and ink drawings are probably the most portable, convenient, and low-cost form of artmaking. All you need is a pen and a piece of paper, and you’re ready to make art!

Nearly everyone has doodled with a pen in the margins of their paper. Drawing with pens can be as fun and easy as that!

There are many types of pens available for drawing, such as:

  • fountain pens
  • graphic pens
  • drafting pens
  • reed pens
  • and even ball point pens.

Any of these types of pens can be used to create fine art!Each type of pen will result in a different quality of line. The kind of pen you prefer will depend on the type of line you would like to create.
