It is laborious but still not finished. *CARTOON – Thorough study for an artwork. - Fully developed – complete piece that is ready for sale. The process and material being used are known as “media” DRY DRAWING MEDIA PENCIL – graphite. It is flexible and inexpensive. SILVERPOINT – not flexible, created lines can’t be erased. To create shadows the artist has to use hatching or crosshatching. CHARCOAL- burned wood. Does not stick to the paper until is sprayed on with fixative. CHALK – shattered stone. The three typical colors are white, black and red. Behaves like charcoal. CONTE CRAYON – oil based. It is not flexible. Comes in black, with and brown. PASTEL – chalk with pure pigments. Flexible and easy to blend. Behaves like charcoal and chalk. LIQUID DRAWING MEDIA PEN AND INK – to create areas for shadows the artist has to use hatching or crosshatching. PEN AND WASH – water and ink work together to create wash (diluted ink). Easier to create shadows. BRUSH AND INK – creates fine lines with brush. BRUSH AND WASH - creates a variety of values. PAINTING Also known as the “Queen” TERMS - PIGMENT – powdered color - BINDER – liquid plus pigment - SUPPORT – the surface, where the artist creates the painting. FRESCO – The surface is a wet plaster, first the wet plaster is placed then the artist starts to paint before the plaster dries. ENCAUSTIC - The surface is wood, in this medium the artist uses melted wax mixed with pigment. This medium is not flexible because the wax dries fast, the artist has to work quickly. TEMPERA – The artist uses pigment mixed with egg yolk and water. Dries very quickly. OIL – It is flexible and is the slowest to dry. Yellows with age. - Glazing is the opposite of impasto. Thin and translucent layers of paint that creates visual texture. ACRYLIC – Flexible as oil, but is water based and dries faster. The paintings in acrylic will not yellow with age. - Airbrush is a technique. The paint is sprayed on to the surface. WATER COLOR – The support being used is wet paper, which gives the paint a wet look. Creates atmospheric effects.
