Gallery Descriptions: Traditional Art, part 1Galleries MonthTraditional Drawings and PaintingsThese two subcategories of Traditional Art contain almost the same sub-galleries - the only exception is Technical Drawings in Drawings subcategory. There are many definitions to describe what paintings and drawings are and you can still add a huge "except..." at the end of each. General rule is: in drawing, you create the picture with lines, while paintings use filled shapes or surfaces. For painting, the medium is a combination of pigment and liquid (simply put), but some pictures done with dry media (such as dry pastel) can also be called paintings, following the previously mentioned definition.AbstractPictures focusing on the formal, non-representational aspect of imagery. They emphasize lines, colours and generalized or geometrical forms, deprived of reality and recognisable objects or beings. Very often confused with Surreal.
