Art that is low priced but high quality

Pen and ink art is understated as an art form because it
looks so simple & easy......like doodling?
Some uneducated buyers think pen & ink art should be
cheaper to buy but, they are simply uninformed.
Making shadows and dimension out of tiny dots and
thin lines of ink requires patience, concentration and a
steady hand.






An ink wash drawing is simply a modified pen & ink
drawing that uses an ink wash or, where an application
of shades of grey are applied with a watercolor brush.
This is high art and should be appreciated in the same
critique as a watercolor painting.
The challenge is to achieve the degree of contrast with-
out overdoing it.
One of the good things about this medium is, it's quick
and with practice, efficient.

Watercolor Art requires the same demands of pen and
ink and ink wash, combined. Pen & ink for areas of solid
black; grey wash for some shade areas & reflections and
blended colors to show shape and contrast without using
a black "cartoonish" line.
As in pen & ink & ink wash, there is no room for making
mistakes working with this demanding medium.
You screw up, you discard it and start over.
