"The artist can without a doubt unleash an enormous expressive force in the mastery of the pure line. In fact, as I mentioned above the line is a highly sensitive and expressive language, with several dialects which can be adjusted at any point. That is imperative for every types of drawings based on lines." (Walter Crane.)
