There is magic in the slender black line made by your ink pen. That simple line can become the feathers of a woodpecker in flight, the soft flesh of a cactus, the foliage of a shade tree… and so much more. From the archives of my Journey Through the Natural Year, I’ve put together seven of my favorite watercolor projects (plus two bonus landscape sketching lessons!) from that course and they are now posted together on a private website as an Ink Drawing Lesson Collection.
