To draw a drawing ;)

Does this sound as poorly worded as it does in English, or even more so, German? Obvious repetition of word roots in a clause should generally be avoided in a Germanic language. ("The painter paints a painting." vs. "The artist sketches a landscape.")

If I'm understanding you right, no, to draw a drawing is fine. I think to draw a picture is fine for this too by the way

This is a literal translation. "To draw" (i.e. to create a picture) should be sufficient. Or, to do a drawing.

What about paint a painting?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SvedishPlumber

I believe that would be correct as well, though I'm a learner as well

What does draw a painting mean? It's paint a painting


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SvedishPlumber

It would seem they've updated the english translation to make more sense.

그림 is the same as 사진?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MadsNrgaar1

사진 is a photograph while 그림 can also be a picture that doesn't come from photography like: drawings, CGI, etc.
