Instruments include graphite pencils, pen and ink, various kinds of paints, inked brushes, colored pencils, crayons, charcoal, chalk, pastels, various kinds of erasers, markers, styluses, and various metals (such as silverpoint). Digital drawing is the act of using a computer to draw. Common methods of digital drawing include a stylus or finger on a touchscreen device, stylus- or finger-to-touchpad, or in some cases, a mouse. There are many digital art programs and devices.A drawing instrument releases a small amount of material onto a surface, leaving a visible mark. The most common support for drawing is paper, although other materials, such as cardboard, wood, plastic, leather, canvas, and board, may be used. Temporary drawings may be made on a blackboard or whiteboard or indeed almost anything. The medium has been a popular and fundamental means of public expression throughout human history. It is one of the simplest and most efficient means of communicating visual ideas.WEB, (adapted), Module 6: Media for 2-D Art,weblink, 2 April 2012, The wide availability of drawing instruments makes drawing one of the most common artistic activities.In addition to its more artistic forms, drawing is frequently used in commercial illustration, animation, architecture, engineering and technical drawing. A quick, freehand drawing, usually not intended as a finished work, is sometimes called a sketch. An artist who practices or works in technical drawing may be called a drafter, draftsman or a draughtsman.WEB,weblink the definition of draftsman, 1 January 2017,


File:Galileo moon phases.jpg|thumb|upright=0.7|left|Galileo GalileiGalileo GalileiDrawing is one of the oldest forms of human expression within the visual arts. It is generally concerned with the marking of lines and areas of tone onto paper/other material, where the accurate representation of the visual world is expressed upon a plane surfaceweblink Traditional drawings were monochrome, or at least had little colour,See grisaille and chiaroscuro while modern colored-pencil drawings may approach or cross a boundary between drawing and painting. In Western terminology, drawing is distinct from painting, even though similar media often are employed in both tasks. Dry media, normally associated with drawing, such as chalk, may be used in pastel paintings. Drawing may be done with a liquid medium, applied with brushes or pens. Similar supports likewise can serve both: painting generally involves the application of liquid paint onto prepared canvas or panels, but sometimes an underdrawing is drawn first on that same support.Drawing is often exploratory, with considerable emphasis on observation, problem-solving and composition. Drawing is also regularly used in preparation for a painting, further obfuscating their distinction. Drawings created for these purposes are called studies.File:Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec - Madame Palmyre with Her Dog, 1897.jpg|thumb|upright|Madame Palmyre with Her Dog, 1897. Henri de Toulouse-LautrecHenri de Toulouse-LautrecThere are several categories of drawing, including figure drawing, cartooning, doodling, and (wikt:freehand|freehand). There are also many drawing methods, such as line drawing, stippling, shading, the surrealist method of entopic graphomania (in which dots are made at the sites of impurities in a blank sheet of paper, and lines are then made between the dots), and tracing (drawing on a translucent paper, such as tracing paper, around the outline of preexisting shapes that show through the paper).A quick, unrefined drawing may be called a sketch.In fields outside art, technical drawings or plans of buildings, machinery, circuitry and other things are often called "drawings" even when they have been transferred to another medium by printing.


Drawing in communication

Drawing is one of the oldest forms of human expression, with evidence for its existence preceding that of written communication.JOURNAL, Tversky, B, Visualizing thought, Topics in Cognitive Science, 2011, 3, 3, 499–535, 10.1111/j.1756-8765.2010.01113.x, 25164401, It is believed that drawing was used as a specialised form of communication before the invention of the written language,WEB, Farthing, S, The Bigger Picture of Drawing,weblink 2011, demonstrated by the production of cave and rock paintings around 30,000 years ago (Art of the Upper Paleolithic).Thinking Through Drawing: Practice into Knowledge 2011c{{page needed|date=December 2017}}These drawings, known as pictograms, depicted objects and abstract concepts.BOOK, Robinson, A, Writing and script: a very short introduction, 2009, Oxford University Press, New York, The sketches and paintings produced by Neolithic times were eventually stylised and simplified in to symbol systems (proto-writing) and eventually into early writing systems.

Drawing in manuscripts

Before the widespread availability of paper, 12th-century monks in European monasteries used intricate drawings to prepare illustrated, illuminated manuscripts on vellum and parchment. Drawing has also been used extensively in the field of science, as a method of discovery, understanding and explanation.

Drawing in science

In 1609, astronomer Galileo Galilei explained the changing phases of the moon through his observational telescopic drawings. In 1924, geophysicist Alfred Wegener used illustrations to visually demonstrate the origin of the continents.

Drawing as artistic expression

Drawing is used to express one's creativity, and therefore has been prominent in the world of art. Throughout much of history, drawing was regarded as the foundation for artistic practice.BOOK, Walker, J. F, Drawing- The Process, 2005, Intellect Books, Bristol, Duff, L, Davies, J, Old Manuals and New Pencils, Initially, artists used and reused wooden tablets for the production of their drawings.See the discussion on erasable drawing boards and 'tafeletten' in BOOK, van de Wetering, Ernst, Rembrandt: The Painter at Work, Following the widespread availability of paper in the 14th century, the use of drawing in the arts increased. At this point, drawing was commonly used as a tool for thought and investigation, acting as a study medium whilst artists were preparing for their final pieces of work.WEB, Burton, J, Preface,weblink JOURNAL, Chamberlain, R, Drawing Conclusions: An exploration of the cognitive and neuroscientific foundations of representational drawing., 2013,weblink The Renaissance brought about a great sophistication in drawing techniques, enabling artists to represent things more realistically than before,BOOK, Davis, P, Drawing – The Process, 2005, Intellect Books, Bristol, 15–25, Duff, L, Davies, J, Drawing a Blank, and revealing an interest in geometry and philosophy.WEB, Simmons, S, Philosophical Dimension of Drawing Instruction,weblink 2011, The invention of the first widely available form of photography led to a shift in the hierarchy of the arts.BOOK, Poe, E. A., The Daguerreotype. Classic Essays on Photography, 1840, Leete's Island Books, New Haven, CN, 37–38, Photography offered an alternative to drawing as a method for accurately representing visual phenomena, and traditional drawing practice was given less emphasis as an essential skill for artists, particularly so in Western society.BOOK, Kovats, T, The Drawing Book, 2005, Black Dog Publishing, London,

Notable artists and draftsmen

Drawing became significant as an art form around the late 15th century, with artists and master engravers such as Albrecht Dürer and Martin Schongauer (c. 1448-1491), the very first Northern engraver known by name. Schongauer came from Alsace, and was born into a family of goldsmiths. Albrecht Dürer, a master of the next generation, was also the son of a goldsmith.NEWS,weblink Old Master prints and engravings {{!, Christie's|last=|first=|date=|work=|access-date=2018-04-20|archive-url=|archive-date=|dead-url=|language=en}}Hinrich Sieveking, "German Draughtsmanship in the Ages of Dürer and Goethe", British Museum. Accessed 20 February 2016Old Master Drawings are often reflect the history of the country in which they were produced, and the fundamental characteristics of a nation at that time. In 17th-century Holland, a Protestant country, there were almost no religious artworks, and, with no King or court, most art was bought privately. Drawings of landscapes or genre scenes were often viewed not as sketches but as highly finished works of art. Italian drawings, however, show the influence of Catholicism and the Church, which played a major role in artistic patronage. The same is often true of French drawings, although in the 17th century the disciplines of French Classicism meant drawings were less Baroque than the more free Italian counterparts, which conveyed a greater sense of movement.NEWS,weblink Old Master drawings {{!, Christie's|last=|first=|date=|work=|access-date=2018-04-20|archive-url=|archive-date=|dead-url=|language=en}}In the 20th century Modernism encouraged "imaginative originality"BOOK, Drawing – The Process, Duff, L, Davies, J, Intellect Books, 2005, Bristol, and some artists' approach to drawing became less literal, more abstract. World-renowned artists such as Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat helped challenge the status quo, with drawing being very much at the centre of their practice, and often re-interpreting traditional technique.WEB,weblink My life in art: How Jean-Michel Basquiat taught me to forget about technique, Gompertz, Will, 2009-02-12, the Guardian, en, 2018-04-20, Basquiat's drawings were produced in many different mediums, most commonly ink, pencil, felt-tip or marker, and oil-stick, and he drew on any surface that came to hand, such as doors, clothing, refrigerators, walls and baseball helmets.NEWS,weblink boom for real: a dictionary of basquiat, 2017-09-26, I-d, 2018-04-20, en-uk, Modern-day artists such as Tracey Emin observe the legacy and importance of drawing, engraving and print making techniques in their vast array, passed down through millennia.The centuries have produced a canon of notable artists and draftsmen, each with their own distinct language of drawing, including:


The medium is the means by which ink, pigment or color are delivered onto the drawing surface. Most drawing media are either dry (e.g. graphite, charcoal, pastels, Conté, silverpoint), or use a fluid solvent or carrier (marker, pen and ink). Watercolor pencils can be used dry like ordinary pencils, then moistened with a wet brush to get various painterly effects. Very rarely, artists have drawn with (usually decoded) invisible ink. Metalpoint drawing usually employs either of two metals: silver or lead.lara Broecke, Cennino Cennini's Il Libro dell'Arte: a new English Translation and Commentary with Italian Transcription, Archetype 2015 More rarely used are gold, platinum, copper, brass, bronze, and tinpoint.Paper comes in a variety of different sizes and qualities, ranging from newspaper grade up to high quality and relatively expensive paper sold as individual sheets.BOOK, Mayer, Ralph, The Artist's Handbook of Materials and Techniques, Viking, 978-0-670-83701-4, 1991, Papers vary in texture, hue, acidity, and strength when wet. Smooth paper is good for rendering fine detail, but a more "toothy" paper holds the drawing material better. Thus a coarser material is useful for producing deeper contrast.Newsprint and typing paper may be useful for practice and rough sketches. Tracing paper is used to experiment over a half-finished drawing, and to transfer a design from one sheet to another. Cartridge paper is the basic type of drawing paper sold in pads. Bristol board and even heavier acid-free boards, frequently with smooth finishes, are used for drawing fine detail and do not distort when wet media (ink, washes) are applied. Vellum is extremely smooth and suitable for very fine detail. Coldpressed watercolor paper may be favored for ink drawing due to its texture.Acid-free, archival quality paper keeps its color and texture far longer than wood pulp based paper such as newsprint, which turns yellow and becomes brittle much sooner.The basic tools are a drawing board or table, pencil sharpener and eraser, and for ink drawing, blotting paper. Other tools used are circle compass, ruler, and set square. Fixative is used to prevent pencil and crayon marks from smudging. Drafting tape is used to secure paper to drawing surface, and also to mask an area to keep it free of accidental marks, such as sprayed or spattered materials and washes. An easel or slanted table is used to keep the drawing surface in a suitable position, which is generally more horizontal than the position used in painting.


File:Raphaël - Étude Madone d'Albe 1.jpg|thumb|Raphael, study for what became the Alba MadonnaAlba MadonnaFile:Watteau jeune fille.jpg|thumb|left|Antoine Watteau, trois crayonstrois crayonsAlmost all draftsmen use their hands and fingers to apply the media, with the exception of some handicapped individuals who draw with their mouth or feet.WEB,weblink The Amazing Art of Disabled Artists, Webdesigner Depot, 16 March 2010, 1 January 2017, Prior to working on an image, the artist typically explores how various media work. They may try different drawing implements on practice sheets to determine value and texture, and how to apply the implement to produce various effects.The artist's choice of drawing strokes affects the appearance of the image. Pen and ink drawings often use hatching – groups of parallel lines.This is unrelated to the hatching system in heraldry that indicates tincture (i.e., the color of arms depicted in monochrome.) Cross-hatching uses hatching in two or more different directions to create a darker tone. Broken hatching, or lines with intermittent breaks, form lighter tones – and controlling the density of the breaks achieves a gradation of tone. Stippling uses dots to produce tone, (wikt:Texture|texture) and shade. Different textures can be achieved depending on the method used to build tone.BOOK, Guptill, Arthur L., Drawing with Pen and Ink, 1930, Reinhold Publishing Corporation, New York, Drawings in dry media often use similar techniques, though pencils and drawing sticks can achieve continuous variations in tone. Typically a drawing is filled in based on which hand the artist favors. A right-handed artist draws from left to right to avoid smearing the image. Erasers can remove unwanted lines, lighten tones, and clean up stray marks. In a sketch or outline drawing, lines drawn often follow the contour of the subject, creating depth by looking like shadows cast from a light in the artist's position.Sometimes the artist leaves a section of the image untouched while filling in the remainder. The shape of the area to preserve can be painted with masking fluid or cut out of a frisket and applied to the drawing surface, protecting the surface from stray marks until the mask is removed.Another method to preserve a section of the image is to apply a spray-on fixative to the surface. This holds loose material more firmly to the sheet and prevents it from smearing. However the fixative spray typically uses chemicals that can harm the respiratory system, so it should be employed in a well-ventilated area such as outdoors.Another technique is subtractive drawing in which the drawing surface is covered with graphite or charcoal and then erased to make the image.South, Helen, The Everything Drawing Book, Adams Media, Avon, MA, 2004, pp. 152–53, {{ISBN|1-59337-213-2}}


(File:Edward Law. Pencil drawing by H. M. Raeburn, 1909. Wellcome V0003431.jpg|thumb|A pencil drawing with hatching and shading)Shading is the technique of varying the tonal values on the paper to represent the shade of the material as well as the placement of the shadows. Careful attention to reflected light, shadows and highlights can result in a very realistic rendition of the image.Blending uses an implement to soften or spread the original drawing strokes. Blending is most easily done with a medium that does not immediately fix itself, such as graphite, chalk, or charcoal, although freshly applied ink can be smudged, wet or dry, for some effects. For shading and blending, the artist can use a blending stump, tissue, a kneaded eraser, a fingertip, or any combination of them. A piece of chamois is useful for creating smooth textures, and for removing material to lighten the tone. Continuous tone can be achieved with graphite on a smooth surface without blending, but the technique is laborious, involving small circular or oval strokes with a somewhat blunt point.Shading techniques that also introduce texture to the drawing include hatching and stippling. A number of other methods produce texture. In addition to the choice of paper, drawing material and technique affect texture. Texture can be made to appear more realistic when it is drawn next to a contrasting texture; a coarse texture is more obvious when placed next to a smoothly blended area. A similar effect can be achieved by drawing different tones close together. A light edge next to a dark background stands out to the eye, and almost appears to float above the surface.

Form and proportion

(File:Human body proportions2 svg.svg|thumb|left|Proportions of the human body)Measuring the dimensions of a subject while blocking in the drawing is an important step in producing a realistic rendition of the subject. Tools such as a compass can be used to measure the angles of different sides. These angles can be reproduced on the drawing surface and then rechecked to make sure they are accurate. Another form of measurement is to compare the relative sizes of different parts of the subject with each other. A finger placed at a point along the drawing implement can be used to compare that dimension with other parts of the image. A ruler can be used both as a straightedge and a device to compute proportions.(File:Male anatomical figure, showing proportions - child to man. Wellcome M0000430.jpg|thumb|upright=.4|Variation of proportion with age)When attempting to draw a complicated shape such as a human figure, it is helpful at first to represent the form with a set of primitive volumes. Almost any form can be represented by some combination of the cube, sphere, cylinder, and cone. Once these basic volumes have been assembled into a likeness, then the drawing can be refined into a more accurate and polished form. The lines of the primitive volumes are removed and replaced by the final likeness. Drawing the underlying construction is a fundamental skill for representational art, and is taught in many books and schools. Its correct application resolves most uncertainties about smaller details, and makes the final image look consistent.BOOK, Hale, Robert Beverly, Drawing Lessons from the Great Masters, 1964, 2009, 45th Anniversary, Watson-Guptill Publications, 978-0-8230-1401-9, A more refined art of figure drawing relies upon the artist possessing a deep understanding of anatomy and the human proportions. A trained artist is familiar with the skeleton structure, joint location, muscle placement, tendon movement, and how the different parts work together during movement. This allows the artist to render more natural poses that do not appear artificially stiff. The artist is also familiar with how the proportions vary depending on the age of the subject, particularly when drawing a portrait.File:2-punktperspektive.svg|thumb|left|Two-point perspective drawingperspective drawing


Linear perspective is a method of portraying objects on a flat surface so that the dimensions shrink with distance. Each set of parallel, straight edges of any object, whether a building or a table, follows lines that eventually converge at a vanishing point. Typically this convergence point is somewhere along the horizon, as buildings are built level with the flat surface. When multiple structures are aligned with each other, such as buildings along a street, the horizontal tops and bottoms of the structures typically converge at a vanishing point.When both the fronts and sides of a building are drawn, then the parallel lines forming a side converge at a second point along the horizon (which may be off the drawing paper.) This is a two-point perspective.BOOK, Watson, Ernest W., Course in Pencil Sketching: Four Books in One, 1978, Van Nostrand Reinhold Company, New York, 978-0-442-29229-4, 167–75, Converging the vertical lines to a third point above or below the horizon then produces a three-point perspective.Depth can also be portrayed by several techniques in addition to the perspective approach above. Objects of similar size should appear ever smaller the further they are from the viewer. Thus the back wheel of a cart appears slightly smaller than the front wheel. Depth can be portrayed through the use of texture. As the texture of an object gets further away it becomes more compressed and busy, taking on an entirely different character than if it was close. Depth can also be portrayed by reducing the contrast in more distant objects, and by making their colors less saturated. This reproduces the effect of atmospheric haze, and cause the eye to focus primarily on objects drawn in the foreground.File:William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905) - Study of a Seated Veiled Female Figure (19th Century).png|left|thumb|upright|Chiaroscuro study drawing by William-Adolphe BouguereauWilliam-Adolphe Bouguereau


The composition of the image is an important element in producing an interesting work of artistic merit. The artist plans element placement in the art to communicate ideas and feelings with the viewer. The composition can determine the focus of the art, and result in a harmonious whole that is aesthetically appealing and stimulating.The illumination of the subject is also a key element in creating an artistic piece, and the interplay of light and shadow is a valuable method in the artist's toolbox. The placement of the light sources can make a considerable difference in the type of message that is being presented. Multiple light sources can wash out any wrinkles in a person's face, for instance, and give a more youthful appearance. In contrast, a single light source, such as harsh daylight, can serve to highlight any texture or interesting features.When drawing an object or figure, the skilled artist pays attention to both the area within the silhouette and what lies outside. The exterior is termed the negative space, and can be as important in the representation as the figure. Objects placed in the background of the figure should appear properly placed wherever they can be viewed.A study is a draft drawing that is made in preparation for a planned final image. Studies can be used to determine the appearances of specific parts of the completed image, or for experimenting with the best approach for accomplishing the end goal. However a well-crafted study can be a piece of art in its own right, and many hours of careful work can go into completing a study.


File:Munich - Two young women drawing - 5814.jpg|thumb|350px|A person drawing the Barberini FaunBarberini FaunIndividuals display differences in their ability to produce visually accurate drawings.WEB, Ostrofsky, J, A Multi-Stage Attention Hypothesis of Drawing Ability,weblink 2011, A visually accurate drawing is described as being "recognized as a particular object at a particular time and in a particular space, rendered with little addition of visual detail that can not be seen in the object represented or with little deletion of visual detail”.JOURNAL, Cohen, D. J, Bennett, S., Why can't most people draw what they see?, Journal of Experimental Psychology, 1997, 67, 6, 609–21, 10.1037/0096-1523.23.3.609, Investigative studies have aimed to explain the reasons why some individuals draw better than others.One study posited four key abilities in the drawing process: perception of objects being drawn, ability to make good representational decisions, motor skills required for mark-making and the drawer's own perception of their drawing. Following this hypothesis, several studies have sought to conclude which of these processes are most significant in affecting the accuracy of drawings.File:Ingres Academic Study (detail) 03.jpg|thumb|upright|left|Drawing process in the Academic Study of a Male Torso by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1801, National Museum, WarsawNational Museum, Warsaw
Motor control
Motor control is an important physical component in the 'Production Phase' of the drawing process.JOURNAL, van Somers, P, A system for drawing and drawing-related neuropsychology., Cognitive Neuropsychology, 1989, 6, 2, 117–64, 10.1080/02643298908253416, It has been suggested that motor control plays a role in drawing ability, though its effects are not significant.
It has been suggested that an individual's ability to perceive an object they are drawing is the most important stage in the drawing process. This suggestion is supported by the discovery of a robust relationship between perception and drawing ability.JOURNAL, Cohen, D. J., Jones, H. E., How shape constanct related to drawing accuracy, The Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity and the Arts, 2008, 2, 1, 8–19, 10.1037/1931-3896.2.1.8,weblink This evidence acted as the basis of Betty Edwards' how-to-draw book, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.BOOK, Edwards, B, 1989, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, Putnam, New York, 978-1-58542-920-2, Edwards aimed to teach her readers how to draw, based on the development of the reader's perceptual abilities.Furthermore, the influential artist and art critic John Ruskin emphasised the importance of perception in the drawing process in his book The Elements of Drawing.BOOK, Ruskin, John, The Elements of Drawing, 1857, Dover Publishcations Inc, Mineola, NY, He stated that "For I am nearly convinced, that once we see keenly enough, there is very little difficult in drawing what we see".
Visual memory
This has also been shown to influence one's ability to create visually accurate drawings.Short-term memory plays an important part in drawing as one's gaze shifts between the object they are drawing and the drawing itself.JOURNAL, McManus, I. C., Chamberlain, R. S., Loo, P.-K., Rankin, Q., Riley, H., Brunswick, N., Art students who cannot draw: exploring the relations between drawing ability, visual memory, accuracy of copying, and dyslexia., Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity and the Arts, 2010, 4, 18–30, 10.1037/a0017335,weblink,
Some studies comparing artists to non-artists have found that artists spend more time thinking strategically while drawing. In particular, artists spend more time on 'metacognitive' activities such as considering different hypothetical plans for how they might progress with a drawing.JOURNAL, Fayena-Tawil, F., Kozbelt, A., Sitaras, S., Think global, act local: A protocol analysis comparison of artists' and nonartists' cognitions, metacognitions, and evaluations while drawing., Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity and the Arts, 2011, 5, 2, 135–45, 10.1037/a0021019,
