The Art of Drawing

Drawing is a form of visual expression and is one of the major forms within the visual arts. Drawings may be representational, depicting objects, living beings, or scenes which the artist views, remembers, or imagines. They may be realistic to the point of lifelike resemblance. However, because it is not possible to present accurately all the visible facts and aspects of an object in black and white, the true art of drawing lies in suggestion through the use of media, materials, and techniques.
Media plays an essential role in drawing itself. without a medium images cannot be produced. The medium is the means by which ink, pigment, or color are delivered onto the drawing surface. Most drawing media are either dry or water-based. Common instruments include graphite pencils, pen and ink, inked brushes, wax color pencils, crayons, charcoals, chalk, pastels, markers, stylus, or various metals like silverpoint. in the process of drawing various tools are also routinely used, such as, a pencil sharpener, sandpaper, kneaded eraser, blending stumps, and chamois. Other tools that sometimes prove useful are tracing paper, a circle compass, ruler, frisket film, fixative, and drafting tape. however, media is useless without a drawing surface.
the material used in drawing is basically any flat 2 dimensional surface that can retain a mark. the most common material, however, is paper. Paper comes in a variety of different sizes and qualities. it ranges anywhere from newspaper grade for practice up to high quality and relatively expensive paper. Papers can vary in texture, hue, acidity, and strength when wet. Smooth paper is good for rendering fine detail, although a more "toothy" paper will hold the drawing material better. Thus a more coarse material is useful for producing deeper contrast. For pen and ink work, typing paper is often used for practice, but heavier paper holds up better. Bristol board makes a hard surface that is especially good for ink or fine detailed graphite drawing. the material plays a major role in influencing suggestion. the type of paper used can help to produce the affect of realism many artists may strive to achieve.
however, the actual techniques of drawing vary, depending the medium or material employed. Very effective drawings are made by using a type of tinted paper, often either gray or pale blue. the highlights are indicated by use of chalk or the pigment called Chinese white. the darker shades and masses are indicated with the pencil, and the tone of the paper is left to represent the intermediate values. of the chief drawing tools, the pen is the most exacting, as it makes a definite mark, hard to alter once the ink has dried. Tints must be expressed by dots, closely crowded lines, and cross-hatching. The masters of pen drawing must be masters of pure line.

  1. Since copying and pasting is not working (your paper didn't appear here), you'll probably need to type it in by hand.
