It was time to do another in my Roundism series after couple of commissions. Many themes to draw but so little time to do them all: cats and dogs, people, still lifes, landscapes and what have you not. Bestowed upon me the heavy burden to do nudes and why not? Being a bachelor I have more than time to pick the nude of my fancy and draw her.
There are many positions a model can show but I particularly like this one with the slanted position of the legs. A great opportunity to show heavy tonal rhythmic cadences whereas the body is folded into a giant zig-zag. It almost looks like some kind of knitted pattern.
I kept the abstraction quite simple without any nifty deformations. In this respect I didn’t do a front-to-end fill-out of the paper so the heavy tonal violence could breathe a bit. Besides that, leaving blank the lower left corner and the upper right one also echoes the diagonals in the body stucture. To me it always is a rhythym of light and dark plains that show repetition in variation and variation in repetition, just like everywhere else on this planet Earth and everywhere is in the Universe.
