Roundism – 02-02-18 (sold)

Based on a prestudy in pastel (Model – 01-12-18) I made this painting in oil. My objective was to stay in line with the fauvist colour kind of strokes (in case of the pastel they were pretty much ‘broken’ and ‘open’ strokes / patches showing white edges) but also to get to a more abstract feel by means of rendering the model slighty cubistic.


The couch she is lying on also is altered to my cubistic needs. Referring to previous cubist drawings I tried to paint some essential geometric shapes in it like circular, rectangular and triangular moves. Colourwise I tried to get the max saturation on the model whereas the couch shows a less saturated colour scheme. Through this principle the attention is drawn to the body fully.
