Surrealistic Frida Kahlo nude graphite pencil drawing

Sans titre – 11-10-18 (sold)

I am not sure what I thought about her, except for her strong personality. I sometimes liked her paintings and then I didn’t.

Roundism – 11-01-18 (sold)

Of late I use models lubed with a lot of oil, just like this art deco-style photograph, in order to obtain great highlights, lovely midtones and smashing darker tones, all divided by abrupt threashold values.

Cubistic nude graphite pencil drawing

Roundism – 24-11-17 (sold)

A new graphite pencil drawing in the roundism series in which I experimented with deformations of body shapes with the purpose of keeping the forms as ‘open’ as possible, so all forms can breathe, flowing from one into another.

Impressionistic portrait pastel drawing

Wouter – 08-11-17 (sold)

A commissioned piece done in an impressionistic style with lots of clairobscur. I had to come up with a solution for depicting his pale skin hues and still rendering them too unsaturated.
