Pastel, Pencil and Charcoal Drawings – Fine Art Gallery
The most convenient thing about drawing is the fact that you can do it wherever and whenever you feel up to it! I used to draw in school at classes. Well, it’s not something to be recomended, but who knows.
Why drawings? Do we, at all, need to bring out this question? Rembrandt claimed that a painting had to be started and finished by a drawing. If you want to paint something specific, you need a good and specific drawing.
It’s just the very first thing one encounters in one’s childhood – we all start by scribbling and continue on and on, impressed with the traces left on paper (sometimes changing paper for walls or furniture). Most give up, choosing something different from art and painting. The rest falls into two groups; the first with people who continue to scrawl and scribble thus becoming abstract artists; the second with those trying to present recognizable shapes, continuing to paint in accordance with their persistence and possibilities. I’ve started with doodles (especially at school while sitting and being bored by dull lessons or dull teachers), and now, I’m trying not to give up and to find out some new lines.
