Paintings are designed to be viewed as images of things, usually made up of lines, colours, and a few points of interest. Often, the image is drawn from information that is given in the text. Examples include “the tree in the picture” and the name of the object within a picture. An example is in the picture below of a tree that is said to live under the sea:
The trees that live on the seafloor, have their own unique form and colour in their leaves.
An illustration by a Japanese writer named Ritsuko Kondo, named “Shoot Out” has been on display at the National Portrait Gallery since September 1, 2000. This is the earliest known example of pencil illustration in the United States.
As described above, the drawings are typically a combination of text and drawings, usually using figures to depict ideas. The picture above is very typical of an illustration.
Is writing in pencil really better than drawing?
No. Both methods have their merits, but writing is generally more efficient in the long run. A good rule of thumb if you are working on a piece of text that has to be printed out, is to only add or subtract any figures or line drawings that are a little more than a letter long. If you need to add more than that, your best bet is to add or subtract just the one or two characters required. The more you can do within the space allotted, the less waste you can eliminate.
There is also a good possibility that in the end your work will be less accurate or even unintelligible with writing, even if you do not make use of a pen. Some pencil works contain very intricate forms, often with symbols and words in them, which are hard to translate once you can see them. A simple pencil sketch, or a line drawing of the same idea, should be just as good.
The most useful trick I can give is to be consistent and try to write the same thing every time. If I don’t know what I’m writing about, my tendency is to write the phrase exactly the same as if I was drawing it – without knowing exactly what the character under the pen is. To me this means being consistent.
What are the advantages of paper over pencil?
Some things have obvious advantages over either drawing or writing on paper. You can see how the pencil is used much more often in modern photography than it is in painting. Even though it’s easy to
