Glossary

Ductus

 

(from the Latin meaning “leading” or “direction”)

In painting, ductus (brushwork) refers to the use of the brush or other implement (e.g. hand, palette knife, squeegee, etc.) and the traces that arise from the application of the paint to the canvas or substrate. In conveying a sense of motion (e.g. flowing, leaping, scribbling, pecking, etc.), these traces can help us to reconstruct the rhythm of the painting hand.
