One of my recurring interests is "drawing," in the sense of drawings that might interest a collector or a museum. Recently I came across a page on Eye Contact: Modern American Portrait Drawings from the National Portrait Gallery, a touring exhibition.

Drawings done in gouache, pastel, or watercolor seem to me almost a different genre, because the image receives so much assistance from the color media.
