Roundism – 11-02-18

Reds and Greens

Based on two previous roundism artworks: a pastel called ‘Into the light – 15-06-17’ (impressionistic, surrealsitic) and a graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 04-07-17’. Given that I liked both works and took the colour scheme of the pastel drawing in reds and green, I also used the roundism style of the pencil drawing and combine them. At the same time, I was not satisfied with using two colours only and added blue als a ligament throughout the oil painting.

 

Cool and Warm

Next to this I also used cool and warm reds and greens in order to create a vivid impression. On the other hand I killed the yellow I used in the initial setup because it drew the attention too much. Futhermore, this type of ‘Roundism’ is based on my theories on singularity I put down in previous descriptions to other works I made in the recent past. Perhaps you will drawn into this painting and keep on looking at it through the path of singularity!

 

Whitespace

After Roundism -02-02-18 I experimented with whitespace around plains in order to avoid a certain lumpy feeling. Obviously I did not invented such myself but stole it from the grandmaster himself, Paul Cézanne. Similarly I spotted these kind of whitespaces in the works of Otto Dicke in his exhibition at the Dordtrechts Museum but I could have named any other great painter who used them.
