Why invest in fine art original drawings?
While paintings are normally produced using wet media such as oil or acrylic paint, drawings are generally made using dry media like pencil, charcoal, crayon, and pastel.
Some artists would contend that there is no difference between painting and drawing aside from the medium. However, others claim that the size of a pencil point, and the width of a painter’s brush is the first distinction, and that drawing is characterised by detail, lines, and shading, while painting is defined by colours and design.
Some artists claim that drawing is the foundation and core of all artwork and if you cannot draw, then you cannot paint but what is clear is that while drawing may be the basis for painting, the reverse is not true.
Many artists see drawing as the foundation of all two-dimensional art, and most artists feel they can achieve more detail through drawing. However in the art world, it would seem that the work an artist who produces drawings is not as highly valued as that of an artist who paints.
Many artists who draw are now offering their works as limited edition prints (high quality artist’s reproductions) so that they can offer their works at a great price to a wider audience.
