Drawing

A traditional drawing is a design produced on a sheet of paper with drawing tools that include charcoal, chalk, crayon, pen, or pencil. A drawing can be a preliminary sketch for a work of art in another medium, or it may be a finished work of art in its own right. In addition to being made with traditional media, modern and contemporary drawings have also been produced by artists with newer drawing tools and supports, such as felt-tip pens and acetate sheets.
