Tonal Drawing

“Where do they find these lines in Nature! For my part I see only forms that are lit up and forms that are not. There is only light and shadow.”                -Francisco de Goya

  1. A compendium of the best we have to offer in the way of marks and scrawls; scribbles and hatches; tonal shrouds and swabs. It’s a pity that only artists are, for the most part, enamored of drawing. It is too austerely made and plainly fundamental to appeal to a larger audience. But such rewards as artist-practitioners can draw from it are legion and will last as long as people care to make marks with tools so subtly simple that almost anyone can use them. Children love drawing, but abandon it much too soon – or become artists themselves.
