Add a territorial dust cover, After attaching the art and framing materials to the actual frame, a dust cover must be used on the back to keep additional dust, spiders, or bugs from entering the framed photograph compartment. This is usually done by using a two-sided tape on the back betide of the molding all the peculiarity around the perimeter. Then a piece of brown paper is laid down on the adhesive ensue as it is reached flat as you press it onto the adhesive make progress . You then trim the outer edges of the brown paper to fit and then you are ready to attach your hanging wire, before placing your artwork on display.
The drawing must be cleaned well, removing smudges, dust, or eraser fragments. To notice if there are any tiny fragments on your paper or drawing, you can look at the draw closer neatly from a severe angle, so that you could notice them contrasting from the paper`s take place as they rise up. You could use a brush or compressed air to remove the fragments from the framing material.
Stay away from black, As a general rule, I always stay away from black, especially solid black-although, it should work if is part of a color strategy with a particular molding and if it is not overpowering the drawing. It`s great to have something that has a range of values-including molding and mats, working as a set. Even with the values and gradations created within the graphite media, the mat or mats and the frame may all be chosen to either compliment, subdue, or emphasize any particular value or aspect of your drawing.
Employment acid- free materials, Whatever matting, tapeline or adhesive, barriers, or backing that you usage in the frame of your art or drawing can be utterly acid free. Acidic materials, after long periods of time should actually damage the artwork in the frame by distorting the definite paper or by turning the paper a yellowish color.
It`s how your finished artwork is presented that makes all the difference. Although it`s tantalizing to just place your drawing in a ready-made frame, there are several things that you can take in contemplation before framing your artwork to insure it is adequately safeguarded over the years.
Always anatomy with glass, I would ever material body with glass, only I would besides expend the supernumerary money for the UV safety glass. However, I would never use non-glare glass or plexiglas.
Let your artwork breathe, In attaching the drawing to the backing or whatever secures its predicament within the mats or frame, it should only be secured at the top and allowed to hang if an adhesive or tape is used. It can not be secured seriously at all four corners or around its perimeter, because the humidity changes chronically and the paper has to have liberty to flex, expand, and contract. Otherwise, the paper will ripple or develop streams if it is confined in any procedure chains in the paper become very apparent when the lighting is directional or at an angle to the framed piece of art. The light causes highlight and shadow because of the contours in the paper. Some framers are using a large plastic photo type corner that allows the paper to slide in and be secure at all four corners and still allow for the flexing of the paper. It seems to be working quite well, as many of my drawings and illustrations using other media on paper, have been framed this convention for a number of years.
The glass must be fantastically clean and can be tested for finger prints, dust, hair, or other strange material, before securing it lastingly in the frame. You may have to do this more than once.
Use matting, I prefer using mats with the framing of my drawings. If an acidic matting is use, it should be backed by an acid-free material that will act as a protective barrier between the matting and the drawing. There is a standard thickness that is required and favorite in the industry for this buffer or barrier. The same consideration can be given to the backing of your drawing. If your drawing or art is backed or mounted on an acid-free material, the barrier is avoidable . Some framers use a foam-core board for backing.

Artists who work with graphite lead praise its versatility. Harder and darker leads produce fine lines for more detailed pencil drawings, while soft and light lead is usually reserved for modeling and shading. Artists who make dark art pencil drawings often aim for sharp precision, while softer leads are more often associated with fluid, spontaneous lines. Typical drawing techniques include hatching, crosshatching, blending shades, and scumbling, in which the artist moves the pencil along the surface of the work in small circular motions. Artists often experiment with different kinds of pencils to make charcoal, watercolor, or colored pencil drawings. They also combine graphite lead with other mediums, including pastels, watercolors, and gouache, to spruce up monochromatic images. Pencil and ink drawings are also a common approach as the ink shades complement and play off one another.
“Untitled landscape” (no.6 in the series ‘Places and Spaces’)
French Neoclassical painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres is known for using limited shading and precise lines to draw his pencil portraits. Adrian Ludwig Richter is similarly recognized for his sharp, wiry lines. Many painters began as draftsmen, as they sketched studies for their painted works. Henri Matisse, Vincent Van Gogh, and Paul Cezanne, for example, sketched pencil drawings of flowers and landscape scenes. Gustav Klimt developed his own style as a draftsman, breaking away from the traditional three-dimensional shaded approach to create figures with pure line. His sketches like “Lasciviousness” for his Beethoven Frieze (1902) instead emphasize the flatness of picture’s surface. Other famous pencil drawings include Willem de Kooning’s “Two Women” (1952) and Pablo Picasso’s “Still Life with Glass, Apple, Playing Card, and Package of Tobacco” (1913). Eugene Delacroix, Amedeo Modigliani, Edgar Degas, John Singer Sargent, Walter Osbourne, William Strang, and Stephen McKenna are just a few other artists known for their pencil drawings.
IntroductionHistory of Pencil DrawingsPencil Drawings TechniquesArtists Known For Pencil Drawings
In the 17th century, graphite pencils replaces the metallic drawing styluses previously used by Medieval and Renaissance draftsmen. Dutch artists were known for their early graphite landscape drawings. In 1795, French painter Nicolas-Jacques invented what is now the modern pencil lead from a mixture of clay and graphite This invention allowed artists to have more control over the density and shade of graphite they used, and the tool subsequently increased in popularity amongst painters, architects, designers, and miniaturists. By the 19th century, pencil drawings were mainly a way for artists to sketch preliminary compositions and studies for paintings and sculptures. The introduction of other fine art pencils, including colored, watercolor, crayon, and charcoal varieties, expanded the medium’s versatility, and pencil drawings became a fine art form in their own right. Today, many artists continue the tradition and often combine pencil lead with other mediums for more dynamic drawings.
Pencil drawings can be rendered in so much photorealistic detail as to fool the eye, while a line drawing has the ability to communicate volumes more than what is shown on paper. Indeed, the humble pencil can be a powerful and versatile tool in the hands of a skilled and inspired artist.
