Drawing is a beautiful art form and I delight in using a variety of graphic media, especially pen and ink, pencil, pastel and charcoal.
The ability to draw is the basis of everything. To the artist drawing is the same as a pianist regularly practicing piano scales. It focuses the creative mind, improves hand eye coordination and the visual representation of a three dimensional world in two dimensions. No matter how abstract the work the underlying drawing is the foundation stone upon which it is based.
