    Colour is usually associated with the art form of painting on surface where colour comes to life in its full vigour. Point and line are mostly linked with drawing and graphic. When we combine colour and drawing we get a coloured drawing. What is a coloured drawing? What characterizes it? These and additional questions were raised in master's thesis which is focused on researching interaction between colour and drawing within space. In theoretical part we first introduced and described the concepts linked with colour and drawing. These concepts are: point, line and colour. We also described the relations between colour and shape and got to know the psychological and physiological effects of individual colours. We then proceeded in master's thesis with the analysis of works of arts and our own works. When analysing works we used Butin's generative scheme and the questions we raised: What are the characteristics of a coloured drawing? What are the approaches or methods of creating a coloured drawing? What feeling will the work of art evoke? What prevails in them – colour or shape, what is it that we see first? Where is the boundary between a coloured drawing and a painting? According to the analysis and the answers obtained we concluded that the work of art could be a coloured drawing, if a coloured point and (or) line prevail as artistic means of expression and form a relationship between colours. Not every artwork is a coloured drawing and only one feature characteristic of a coloured drawing does not suffice. Both features must be seen in an artwork. For example, a drawing in which prevails a line expressed only in a green colour is not a coloured drawing; one colour only does not form a relationship between colours. Minimum of two colours are needed for this kind of relationship. If we spot a great variety and diversity of colours used in an artwork, in which small planes prevail to the point that we can ask ourselves whether the work is a coloured drawing or a painting, then this artwork cannot be characterized as a coloured drawing. Thus, we discovered individualities of coloured point and line and researched a topic not yet well known.
