I am not sure what I thought about her, except for her strong personality. I sometimes liked her paintings and then I didn’t. What I have in common with her is that we both are autodidacts and that we like(d) to go our own way in life. Somehow I always come across her once in a while and that is why I decided to draw her. I saw a lovely – rare – nude photograph and thought I’d include her in my sans titre / roundism series.
Some time ago I saw two horses when I walked across a small meadow. I was on my way to Museum Singer at Laren, Noord-Holland, Netherlands. It so happened that they were standing close to my favorite tree I painted years ago (Autumn Tree at Laren).
Based on a prestudy in pastel (Model – 01-12-18) I made this painting in oil. My objective was to stay in line with the fauvist colour kind of strokes (in case of the pastel they were pretty much ‘broken’ and ‘open’ strokes / patches) but also to get to a more abstract feel by means of rendering the model slighty cubistic.
The 26th of December 2017 I was attending a concert by the Symfonie Orkest Nijmegen in the Stevenskerk at Nijmegen, Gelderland, Netherlands.
