Learn Ink and Pen Drawing


It’s Inktober. And here’s another learn series. I have been doing some ink and pen drawing with many styles and colours. And having a wonderful time doing these art forms apart from my canvas painting.

What is Ink and Pen drawing?

The idea is to use a pen to apply ink to a surface. Though, there are various techniques in this form. Mostly, the artist uses black ink but you can add colours if you prefer.

What type of paper to use?

The paper which has smooth surface is preferred. Since it will give you a good flow to your pen.

What pens to use?

I particularly use Luxor fine tip Pen (Set of 10) because I like to add colour to my art. You can use Micron pens of different thickness to add more details to your drawing.

The important thing: Enjoy the process because it’s meditative.

So, here are a few of my artworks.

I am a night person!
Khamma Ghani (This one is a zentangle)

Of course, more to add and many in progress. Till then, pick up those pens and create your art!

  1. Wow this is so cool!! They should have added my style too, the only one that’s missing, called noodles or scribbling. 😂🙈🙈
    Jokes aside, I love the owl you made, it’s so cute! 💜

    1. Hahaha. Shruba, your technique is worldwide accepted one. Actually, noodles and scribbling is a pattern. So, go ahead and create something beautiful. Thank you very much for liking my owl. It’s a personal favourite too.

  2. Nice work! I myself enjoy using fountain pens for everything, except that I can’t draw to save my life. Love the extra bits you added for cross hatching. Those are some techniques I could certainly practice when I doodle.
