The Venus of The Hague – 29-05-20

Further Abstracted

This one is one step further abstracted than my previous drawing ‘The Venus of The Hague – 26-05-20’. I left the atmospheric depth for what it is and focused on the rhythym of dark and light plains, combined with a contrast in sharp and dark linear patterns that counterbalance bigger plains of midtones with blurry smooth delineations. I tried to keep it as essential as I could and still maintain the image of a sensual woman. Of couse the gradient of tonal values in the body parts are conducive to the feel of something smooth and round.


So Many Ideas

I quite like the lines and think I will do some variations on this style in the future. But then again, I have so many ideas. It is like breeding rabbits. I have an idea 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 and so on. So I am not worried.
