    Scroll down a bit to the Britannica Concise Encyclopedia entry for discussion (and links) about the different media in which painting is done.


    Q2) Is he writing a bule gel ink pen?
    (Is this expression correct? Do people use gel ink pens when they write?)
    You need to say, "Is he writing with a blue pen?" You can add "gel" if you wish, but you don't need to add "ink" since that's what a pen does -- makes lines with ink.

    Q3) Will you name writing materials which people use frequently when they draw or paint a picture?

    colored pencils, colored pens, fountain pens,.................
    Those are correct; you can also add charcoal, brushes, palette knife ( http://www.answers.com/topic/palette-knife ), paint rollers, and others.

    Other tutors may have more to add.
