Tools for Drawing – Drawing Chalks

Various red chalks can be used for drawing. Such tools for drawing include my favourite, Sanguine, which was a very popular medium widely used by the Old Masters. It has softness and warmth and looks particularly good on toned paper. It is very well suited for nude drawings because of the warm colour resembling the skin.


Tools for Drawing
Other tools for drawing are red ochres or iron oxide reds, have always been available for artists as natural materials found in earth. Natural chalks are made from clay-like deposits, which are mined straight out of the ground. Such chalks are never pure and therefore their colour varies considerably. In this video lesson on tools for drawing you will receive information on various drawing chalks and coloured pencils as well as advice on using such drawing materials.

You will also discover the difference between traditional natural chalks and contemporary manufactured drawing chalks.

Tools for Drawing – Coloured Pencils

When it comes to such tools for drawing as coloured pencils, there are so many brands and colours to choose from. This video will de-mystify the complexity of this media and give practical advises on coloured pencils use.

Tools for Drawing – Custom Toned Watercolour Paper

In the Drawing Academy, I have presented several video lessons where red pencils are used on toned with watercolour paper. Preparing custom colour paper is an art on its own. This is a great skill to have! In this video part you will discover what materials you need to have to tint watercolour paper in any colour required.

Tools for Drawing – Artist Charcoals and Carbon Sticks

Other tools for drawing include such media as black charcoals and carbon sticks. Charcoal gives soft, velvety, dark grey marks. It is a very flexible and forgiving medium because charcoal marks are easily erasable. You will get necessary information on various charcoal sticks and their grades, as well as brands, shapes and sizes.
