I found a great vintage photo online that inspired me to put this female body on paper using triangles and round shapes, strengthening the pyramid like pose.
The build-up of my drawing ‘Roundism – 03-09-19’
This oil painting is based on my drawing ‘Nude – 17-06-15’. An artist often sees one thing in another. Salvador Dali saw a rhinoceros in Vermeer’s Lacemaker. I saw a horse in a women’s thigh.
A next session of my work in progress based on my drawing ‘Nude 17-06-15’. The last bits and pieces. Finishing the work

The build-up of my drawing ‘Voorburg – 27-08-19’
Another drawing of a clairobscur forest lane at Park Sonnenburgh in Voorburg, Netherlands, conveniently lingering about around the corner of where I work.
A next session of my work in progress based on my drawing ‘Nude 17-06-15‘. After my last work in progress post August 13th 2019 I decided to add things. I got inspired by Skythians that spawned the legend of the Amazones.
The build-up of ‘De Lakenhal – 16-08-19’
Last weekend I visited De Lakenhal at Leiden, Netherlands to see the exhibition ‘Rembrandt and the Golden Age’. Quite nice, also to see the refurbished museum. When I looked out the windows at the front of the building I was captured by the Oude Vest on which the light was filtered by the museum glass. It looked a little bit sinister and there were gloomy clouds in the sky which lead me to draw this one.
