What makes a drawing a drawing?Posted: February 9, 2014
Throughout drawing philosophy we questioned what is drawing? what differentiates a drawing from other art forms?
I have completed two different illustrations of which i believe to both be drawing; i see one as the more traditional format using pencil and the other using inks, water colour and biro for the unfinished and vibrant modern take of drawing.
Although both visually completly different, in my eyes they both have the characteristics of drawing because they were done by hand, are two dimensional and hopefully require an element of skill that seperates an artistic drawing from an accidental scribbled line.
Both these images visually interest me, i have always been drawn to art and drawings which show the artists skill or intent to sit and complete that piece of art. I have combined skills i have learnt throughout drawing philosophy and drawing in conversation with Natasha to finish these pieces. The vibrant ink illustration uses the skill of being fast, free and loose with the drawing tool. I had previously been a lot more meticulous and time consumed for each drawing but this subject has shown me other ways.
