The Venus of The Hague – 29-05-20

Further Abstracted

This graphite pencil drawing ‘The Venus of The Hague – 29-05-20’ is my version of minimal art. Atmospheric depth is left for what it is. Instead I focused on the rhythym of dark and light planes. Obviously this one is one step further abstracted than my previous drawing ‘The Venus of The Hague – 26-05-20’. It turned out to become a combinaton of contrasts in sharp and dark linear patterns. They counterbalance bigger planes of midtones with blurry smooth delineations. Above all, I tried to keep it as essential as I could. Certainly I wanted to maintain the image of a sensual woman. Naturally the gradient of tones in the body parts are conducive to the feel of something smooth and round. That was my very aim. Personally I think abstraction always has got to have a connection with reality.

So Many Ideas

The way this drawing turn out I must sayI quite like the linear aspect of it. Perhaps I will do some variations on this style in the future. But then again, I have so many ideas. It is like breeding rabbits. An idea comes to mind but it brings forth another one and before I know it I have 10. In the meantime I think I rely on inspiration that will arrive at the right time. Isn’t inspiration nothing more than another word for association? I noticed that, when starting to draw, my mind associates what I am doing with something else. So I am not worried. Well, one worry perhaps: that I won’t be able to execute all great ideas in oil in time. It’s a burden I gladly accept as a creative artist.
