No. 7 (OPTIONAL) BRUSH AND INK
Practice strokes with brush and ink. The width of a pen stroke is limited by the styles and flexibility of the pen points you use. But a fine-pointed sable brush can make strokes varying from a hairline to the full width of the brush. Figure 28 shows some practice strokes for this brush. Most of them are quickly-drawn strokes. It also shows strokes made with a flat or square-ended brush. The pointed brush is the most useful, but at times the bold strokes of the flat brush are effective. You'll find the brush a little harder to control than the pen, due to its flexibility. Practice controlling the width of the stroke by the amount of pressure you apply.
