Roundism – 03-09-19

A great Vintage Photo

I found a great vintage photo online that inspired me to put this female body on paper in my roundism style, using triangles and round shapes, strengthening the pyramid like pose. Adding a black square to the right of the model’s head was meant to honor Malevich, founder of the suprematism movement. Furthermore I kept some figurative recognition in the breasts and face in order to drag the beholder into believing he or she actually is looking at a model rather than seeing nothing but geometrical forms.



Into the light

The diagonal light block hits her face so the focus is centralized from the hip to her head. Through this St. Andrew’s cross composition, being the light block placed in a 90 degree angle to the tilted body position, the drawing has gained the necessary dynamics.
