Today Leonid Tomilin's drawings are the result of more than 35 years of experimentation with technique and material (paper, graphite pencil).

Alexander Glezer, director general of the Museum of Contemporary Russian Art in Jersey City, USA, defined the direction of what Leonid Tomilin does as "figurative and abstract expressionism.

The conceptual task was to combine academic achievements in drawing with contemporary formal visual quests.

Intensive use of techniques more characteristic of painting (nuance, contrast, different tones), creates an impression of a watercolor. 

It is possible to classify the graphics of L. Tomilin as "expressive romanticism". In another case, it is "abstract expressionism".

The range of subjects and forms is quite broad: from genre sketches and illustrations to abstract expressive compositions. 

Virtuoso laconic composition is the artist's philosophy. Huge arrays of drawing surfaces are covered by broad pencil strokes, more like brush strokes, and the use of pencils of different hardness allows for the achievement of maximum pictoriality of the drawing.
