Strokes of Genius 4 - Doug Swinton

Updated: Nov 18, 2020

The Best of Drawing - Exploring Line

"Line is arguably the most fundamental and direct element in art, and also the most expressive ... as personal as handwriting. Strokes of Genius 4 explores the line work of more than 100 contemporary masters. These artists tell the stories of their varied subjects through strong verticals and sweeping diagonals, quick staccatos and loose, sensuous strokes."

We are proud to announce that our very own Doug Swinton was included in this beautiful publication.  

Why is it always the first few "I don't care" warm-up sketches that seem to work? Spontaneity and not overthinking is my guess. I like to draw just fast enough to keep the left brain chasing the right. Not quite lifting the pencil off the page, I love the ghost lines that are left from drawing in an accelerated manner. And a splash of color, top up my wine and sit back to admire how smart I was to buy a sketchbook with perforated pages!
