Additional Information

Disegno:
Il disegno è il processo di tracciare segni su una superficie tramite l'applicazione di una pressione o il trascinamento di un apposito strumento sulla superficie. Gli strumenti sono: matite in grafite o colorate, penna, pennelli fini con inchiostro, pastelli a cera o carboncini; i supporti tradizionali più frequenti sono carta, cartoncino, tavola, muro, tela, rame, vetro.

Pastels and tempera:
The pastel is a drawing technique that uses sticks of colored pigment. The percentage of the binder (glue or wax) is reduced to a minimum to ensure adhesion of the pigment to the sheet. The color is so pure and bright; this characteristic is enhanced by using paper more or less rough. To ensure an increased adhesion of the colored powders to the paper, the drawing can be sprayed with a fixative, which decreases, however, the vividness of colors. A pastel drawing can be properly preserved under glass to protect it from moisture and dust.
