document drawing pen and ink by Carol Allison
The drawing above was done on location for an oil painting which was painted in the studio. Combined with a watercolor sketch (a colornote)a well drawn and prepared document drawing refreshes the visual memory of the artist back to the actual landscape.With the addition of a few written notes the artist can reinterpret the subject in oil to a higher degree of completion.

This drawing was also made for an oil painting which was painted in the studio. Some color notation was applied to the document drawing. Blue gray pencil was used on the distant mountains. Written notes list the order of tones in the light from paler to darker as well as their relationship to the tones in the distance.
