As with watercolor, people have always thought that ink was a difficult medium, simply because it's not easy to control and, because you cannot erase, is rather unforgiving. But really, both those difficulties are resolved with careful planning. Which means that water-borne media are not for everyone; but for those with the right personalities, they can be a lot of fun and very satisfying. With pen and ink, you can get very fine detail, and with brush and ink, great contrasts of light and dark. You can also get some wonderful effects - perhaps not as diverse as in watercolour, but, nevertheless, greater than those possible in any of the other black-and-white media. What is the attraction of black-and-white media? They require more imagination from the viewer than color. So if you are a person given to imagination, you will probably appreciate black-and-white, and especially ink, more than color media. It may be an aquired taste; but once you have it, it opens up the world of art in ways you never imagined.
