Drawing is using existing tools to make marks. It has a simplicity and directness that comes from taking a tool, like a pencil, and applying it to paper with the technique lying in the sensitivity and variations of the artist’s hand. The artistry of painting lies in the artist’s ability to mix shades and hues of color. These unique variations of an existing medium add depth, complexity, and subtlety which transform the melody of drawing into the symphony of painting.
