One of the most expressive yet simplest forms of art are drawings. When an artist produces an image by making marks with a pencil, ink, graphite, crayon or chalk, the artwork is referred to as a drawing. The emphasis of drawings is on the form, and not on the colour, as is the case with a painting.
There are lots of different types of drawings, including pencil drawings, ink drawings, charcoal drawings, graphite drawings, and chalk drawings, to mention a few. The difference in these types lies in the medium that is used. Apart from these types of drawings, it is also worth noting that there are also blind drawings, which are as simplistic as can be since there are generally very few lines and strokes, combined with a complete renouncement of colour. So the uniqueness of the drawing basically lies in the expressiveness of the lines and strokes. In a drawing the main focus is on the formation of line, and there is a lack of colour, meaning that one will be concentrating mostly on the main subject or shape. Since many artists prefer to express themselves in a simplistic manner, drawings prove to be a great way to do so. As a result there are many drawings which are as expressive and inspirational as much, or even more, than a detailed painting is. Drawings are the oldest form of art and sketches and drawings can be found way back in prehistoric times. Over the years drawings changes and developed, and with this evolution came the emergence of new mediums and techniques, until today there are several types of drawings being sold by artists from all over the world.
