Another one in the roundism series. Last one ‘Roundism – 07-04-18 (sold)’ fulfilled my ambitions and therefore I was in a winning mood. Why not immediately start a new one then? Of late I feel that my roundism style is getting somewhere. It evolved out of cubism but now takes on a distinct form. Years I spent looking for a style to call my own and I think I have found it finally. The multi-perspectivistic aspect of traditional cubism always disturbed me. I am a bit of an aesthetic I must admit and I love beautiful forms. Rather than disturbing them I love to portray them with the right proportions and lots of atmospheric depth. Upon my word, the only thing roundism has in common with traditional cubism is its styling to some extent. Strange how one thing stems from another but then starts to follow its own logic.
In the model I saw a great looking egg on her buttocks and thigh. Since Spring has arrived I took the liberty to freely meditate on a nude woman. On the one hand she looks rather cubistic. On the other hand she is surrounded my daffodils in bloom and even some hares lingering about doing their thing. It is Spring after all. Everything proceates and I just lay it out for the spectator. Spread it out!
Next to these frivolities there are also some artistic comments to make. For the observant viewer there is a repetition of curves in the lower right part of the drawing. Those curves iare repeated in the back of the left hare to the left of the graphite pencil drawing. It creates the necessary rhythym.
Another aspect is openess of forms. Contrary to the aforementioned last roundism drawing I incorporated a lot of openess in this one. What I mean is that I kept a lot of the dominant factor (the female figure) open. It can breathe straight into the negative space. This way there is an optimal connection with her environment. It makes her feel right at ease in nature.
