The Innovative Artist

The Innovative Artist: Drawing Dramatic Landscapes

by Robert Dutton

This book is aimed at artists who wish to explore new ways of using a variety of drawing media to create striking, dramatic landscapes. The author, Robert Dutton, works in a loose style and combines media such as liquid graphite, inks, metallic inks, charcoal and water-soluble painting and drawing pastels. He also experiments with collage work. 

Predominantly focusing on working in black and white, Drawing Dramatic Landscapes explores basic drawing techniques using a limited range of media, then introduces new techniques and products as the reader progresses. This is a highly-instructive guide to the techniques Robert himself uses, with numerous exercises and larger step-by-step projects throughout the book showing how he works. Alongside these are numerous examples of the author’s finished artworks accompanied by informative captions explaining the methods used to create them, thereby providing both instruction and inspiration.

Robert works outdoors from life much of the time, later finishing his artworks in the studio. His work is both achievable and aspirational, making this a highly-attractive book for artists of all abilities.
