Drawing is a very relaxing pastime and can help to calm us in these stressful times. As Vincent Van Gogh said:
"In spite of everything I shall rise again: I will take up my pencil, which I have forsaken in my great discouragement, and I will go on with my drawing."
We are no Van Gogh but can try our hand with a variety of tools - pens, ink, pencils and a variety of surfaces. We stock many brands to help with drawing such as:
Surfaces can be small pads of cartridge paper, larger, pieces or cotton rag paper. Our new range in from KHADI Handmade paper is made from 100% long fibred cotton rag. These are all Acid free, have a medium-rough surface and are deckle edged. These can be used for watercolour and all painting and drawing media.
Choosing what to draw can be a simple household item to a person you see in the street or objects of nature
To finish with another great saying by Cezanne:
"Pure drawing is an abstraction. Drawing and colour are not distinct, everything in nature is coloured."
