Words in Six Languages Relating to Drawings

September 7th, 2009 Comments Off on Words in Six Languages Relating to Drawings

The table below the Pieter van Laer drawing is a start at compiling a list of words that relate to drawings. The list was first written in English and then translated into the five other languages. Some blanks will be filled in soon. Other terms,  important words such as those that distinguish various types of inks (iron gall, bistre, carbon, sepia) and kinds of chalks will require more attention and will be added later. I’ll be grateful for any corrections.For an introduction to drawing techniques and materials, please see Michael Miller’s site here.Pieter van Laer | Dutch Artists in a Roman Tavern | Pen, brown ink and wash, over
