Palladian House – Quick Sketch by Charles Jos Biviano | Strokes of Genius 4: Exploring Line

This week we bring you a piece from North Light Books’ most recent art competition, Strokes of Genius 4: Exploring Line: Charles Jos Biviano’s Palladian House – Quick Sketch.

Ink on bond paper, 11″ x 17″ (28cm x 43cm)

Here’s what Charles says about his art:
Palladian House – Quick Sketch was a twelve-minute on-site study intended for a more formal studio work. The subject was intentionally kept loose; long gestural pen strokes combined with quick shading for definition added both believability and depth to the study. While some architectural detailing is used, it is kept at a minimum. A loose line always conveys more information.

Charles Jos Biviano’s piece Palladian House – Quick Sketch appeared in Strokes of Genius 4: Exploring Line, to be published by North Light Books in October 2012. Check the Strokes competition page in the fall for your chance to appear in Strokes 6 and win other prizes!
