Model session 2 @ Rotterdam - 20-10-17

 

Another 15 min. sketch I made at the same session of October 15th during a live model session at Rotterdam. This is also pastel on Pastelmat. I was not sure about the colour saturation because applying higly saturated pigments can easily lead to inflation, so today I tuned down some parts. This is the same model like the previous pastel. I consider this one also to be expressionist of nature, although there is lots of clairobscur. I'm not very sure yet how to call this style but that is not the task of an artist.

About corneakkers

1969, born in Nijmegen. My work can be seen in many countries all over the world. I employ a variety of styles that all have one thing in common: the ever search for the light on phenomena and all the shadows and light planes they block in. My favorites in doing so are oil paint, dry pastel and graphite pencil. It is not the form or the theme that counts but the way planes of certain tonal quality vary and block in the lights. Colours are relatively unimportant and can take on whatever scheme. It is the tonal quality that is ever present in my work, creating the illusion of depth and mass on a flat 2d-plane. I combine figurative work with the search for abstraction because neither in extremo can provide the desired art statement the public expects from an artist. Besides all that, exaggeration and deviation is the standard and results in a typical use of a strong colour scheme and a hugh tonal bandwith, in order to create art that, when the canvas or paper would be torn into pieces, in essence still would be recognizable.
