This day the coin flipped to roundism again and why not? Working again with my favourite model I took a lot of bodyscape pictures of her. When they appear in my lens they often create a surrealistic and cubistic lanscape. The coin can drop to either side, dependant on my mood. I have no particular preference. Perhaps my cubist style is surrealist enough.
This style is about three years of age now and it is ever evolving. Evidentially it is related to cubism but is in line with my preference for atmospheric depth in stead of multiperspectivism. In this drawing I managed to combine round and straight shapes just the way I like it. Maybe for the first time it surpasses my expectations. My graphite pencil drawing Roundism 08-10-17 already showed these features but this one is one step farther. For some reason earlier attempts, combining round and straight, did not work out very well. Perhaps they were a bit inbalanced but this one passed the test.
All of a sudden I saw limbs running back on the lens apparently deattached from the body. First one has to acknowlege the fact the body can be considered as a mere bag of bones and flesh. Because of that it shows all kind of rectangulars, triangles, circles and cubes. Consequently I thought I should combine these findings and make this drawing. However, don’t pin me on this one. A later drawing Roundism – 24-11-17 shows much more flowing shapes. That also hits the hammer on the nail. I let my mind flow wherever it may choose to wander.
