Pencil Drawing

The common pencil available in various grade are used in pencil drawing to produce a quick sketch or a finely worked drawing. Pencil marks vary according to the hardness of the graphite lead in the shaft.It is the easiest medium to handle and restricted to small scale drawings. Many carry a note books and pencils with them and draw instantaneously if the scene appeals to them.

Pen & Ink

Pen and ink is medium applied to paper generally by steel pens with black or colour inks.The steel pen is now used for drawing almost exclusively and is available in many shapes,sizes, and degrees or stiffness or flexibility. You need to plan well before starting the painting process since it is difficult to correct the mistakes. The blank or white space plays vital role.

Charcoal

It is an excellent medium for beginners. It can be used to produce rich tonal effects by smudging with fingers or dragged across the paper to produce different tonal areas, texture, and shading. The charcoal available in various thicknesses is made from twigs of wood which are subjected to slow-burning process.
Charcoal’s major advantage as a medium is its versatility. However, drawings made with charcoal on paper are impermanent need to be sprayed with a fixative to prevent smudging.

Pastel

Pastel are sticks of colors made from the powdered pigment bound with resin or gum. Thought hey easily crumble, they are easy to apply, rubbed, smeared, and blended to achieve effects. Pastel should be done on a textured dry paper allowing the artist to apply colour to a composition from the very beginning. The final painting need to be protected with fixative sprays to prevent the pigment smudging.

Water Colours

Watercolors are a highly versatile medium and they can be applied only on paper. Paintings are gradually build in layers working from light to dark leaving the white. Colour tones are achieved by staining the paper when wet with varying amounts of colour pigments. The darkest accents maybe placed on the paper with the pigment with water mixed with it. The white paper creates the whites. Various types of water colour papers are available and quality papers render excellent result.

Gouache

Unlike water colour painting,gouache contains chalk to make it opaque and more reflective. These can be worked from dark to light. Apart from its opacity rest are similar to water colours. It can be painted on white paper or board. It is thinned with water before application.

Oil Painting

Oil is a vibrant and versatile medium which allows the artist to create greater richness of colour as well as a wide range of tonal transitions and shades. Because it is slow to dry, artists can continue working the paint for much longer than other types of paint. This provides greater opportunity for blending and layering. Paints can be thinned by using turpentine or linseed oil. Long handled bristle brush in various shapes and painting knifes are used in oil painting.

Acrylic

Acrylic paints are water based and dry faster. They need to be thinned either with water or with acrylic medium. Acryclic can be done on paper, wood, board, canvas or with any other surface. It dries fast and correction can be made only by over painting. It is also difficult to spread around like oil painting.
