Impressionist Painting Study by Marlene M. Krueger

Painting and drawing

The process of painting and drawing is the fine art of painting on a flat surface. Prehistoric painting that has survived over thousands of years was applied using wet plaster — a fresco technique to natural rock surfaces, and wall painting.

Paintings on wood panel or canvas with oil painting and tempera, have been the most important in the Western world for several centuries.

Paintings that are intended to go in a book or album are called “miniatures”. Watercolor is the western version of painting on paper, with mediums such as gouache, chalk, used without brushes.

Drawing using graphite pencils pen and ink, inked brushes, wax color pencils, crayons, charcoals, chalk, pastels, markers, stylus, or metals like silverpoint. Drawing is one of the major forms of the visual arts.
