Today I would love to announce a contest sponsored by @nTopaz. The theme is Pencil Drawing.
Why Pencil Drawing?
Drawing is one of the basic skills in the creation of art. Artists draw with pencil when they want to sketch an object or their idea, prepare for a painting (under color layer), or add more details and skill to make their drawing a complete artwork. We all know the importance of drawing in art.
“Drawing is the masculine side of art, colour the feminine side … The union of drawing and colour is necessary to beget painting just as is the union of man and woman to beget mankind, but drawing must maintain its preponderance over colour. Otherwise painting speeds to its ruin: it will fall through colour just as mankind fell through Eve” - Charles Blanc - Art critic
Art contest is a great opportunity for artists to share and learn from each other. We can explore the different concepts and methods from other artists and see how we can introduce some of those notions into our own art works.
