These mediums have never been surpassed in regards to permanence, or for adaptability to various techniques. Whether in high impasti or in thinnest gla/.es, paints, condi- tioned by copal media, respond to the bidding of the artists tools with surprising ease; colors attain unusual depth and brilliance, and the stability of the paint film reaches its absolute optimum.

This seemingly com-plicated subject can be broken downinto the cylinder, the sphere, and manyminor components. Once the broadgeneral parts have been established youcan then look for the rhythm and di-rection of line, as with the leaves. by Stuart Hilton Illustration* Courtesy The Grumbacher Library, N.Y.C. LTHOUGH certain styles of modern art, especially ab- A stract-expressionism, do not seem to demand any knowl- edge of drawing, most artists, modern as well as tradi- tional, must know how to draw. Drawing is still the founda- tion of all the fine arts. Some artists start their paintings without making a regular outline drawing; this simply means that they draw with paint and brush, instead of with char- coal or pencil. Experienced artists can do this, especially in oil painting or polymer where changes and corrections are easy to make. A watercolorist almost always makes a light pencil layout before he starts to paint in order to avoid hard- to-correct mistakes. Drawing can be done in pencil, charcoal, crayon, pen-and- ink, feltbrush and fine-pointed brushes. It can be left as a sketch or it can be carried to the highest level of artistry. The more you draw, the greater your skill in painting will be. It is helpful for the student to simplify what he sees into moreTHK overall subject teikes onone basic shape, while withinthat you can look for additionalshapes and the relationship toone another.
