Drawing: Charcoal, Pen, Ink, Pencil; Painting Watercolors:

  • Definition: Drawing involves making marks on a surface. It could include art tools such as charcoal, pen, ink, and pencil. 
  • Painting involves applying pigments mixed with a medium (such as water or oil) to a surface. In case you are wondering why watercolor paintings are included with drawing, it is because many of the title on the left, combine ink or pencil with watercolors. Some watercolor teaching books are included under teaching resources on the navigation bar on the left.
