expressionistic nude pastel drawing

Model session @ Rotterdam – 19-11-17 (sold)

Model Session at Rotterdam

Yesterday’s session at Rotterdam offered Gabriëlle, the model of that Sunday afternoon. She had great hip bones and was slender, thus showing great angles and triangles with her body. Since this was a 20 min. pose I used Clairfontaine Pastelmat in order to fill up the tooth with Schmincke pastels (sides) so I got to lay plains quickly. That I succeeded I consider to be a lucky shot because so many of these live sessions sketches do not make it to works of art that are here to last.

 

New Ways of Rendering

Nowadays I’m all-in the mood for searching for new ways to present my art and I was drawn to the expressionist spectrum of rendering body shapes. As to this the goal for drawing sessions like these is to practise one’s hand and eye. To me it entails something else too: to deliberately complicate the process by speeding things up. Through this way I have find new ways in the past, whereas taking your time to set up a composition normally will lead to doing things the usual way. Another way to come up with something new is to do one motif again and again as explained in the description of Nude – 28-04-15 (sold) (Variation 8 on the Same Theme).

 

It is in the hands of a Scottisch collector now.
