Draw and Paint is the English version of the Italian blog Disegno & Pittura. In 2006, when I started the blog Disegno & Pittura , there were a lot of English sites about drawing and painting techniques, while there were very few sites in Italian. So I decided to resolve this gap creating a blog where to write about these subjects. I started writing theoretical articles, tutorials, reviews and so on. The blog became popular in Italy, so I decided to start an English version of it. For several years I studied drawing and painting, and in the meanwhile, I accumulated a lot of notes about these subjects. I decided to make them available for free on Internet hoping that it might be helpful for other Italian artists. Now I want to share them also with all other artists around the world that do not speak Italian and, in order to do that, I started this English blog. Years ago I was convinced that to be a good artist a particular vocation and talent was necessary. This is partly true, but over time I realized that we also need a large theoretical knowledge. The practice is useless unless it is based on good theory and vice versa. This blog will talk about theoretical and practical aspects of drawing and painting. I hope to involve as many people as possible, so that it becomes a place of active debate.
