Drawing, for the artist, can be a means to an end or an end in itself. As a means, it is a skill the artist uses to record features and phenomena of nature to better understand it and to create a visual memory storehouse for future work. It is a learned skill, involving hand, eye and intellect. This skill can also be used abstractly in designing and composing projects for other mediums.
Drawing is, in itself, a powerful mode of expression, that when matched with appropriate tools and media, can lead to final works that are as expressive and memorable as any other form of art.
For Edward Hill drawing is “the process of putting visual intelligence into action….the process by
which the artist makes clear to himself…what he is doing.”
