I am always looking for inconventional vantage points as to looking at a model and this position seemed both sensual and integrous as implicitely explicit.
It is World Animal Day and I miss my cat Furia. She sat for me as a model a couple of times and I thought I’d honour her today.

Every woman needs a celebration and when one sees a particular beautiful one and the principles of clairobscur love to portray her, then it is time to make a move and render her in my roundism style.
No doubt about it: cats are portals to the other side and through the vortices of their curly tails we are directly drawn into it.

My model came with this pose Modonna used for one of her albums. Originally it was intented to do square sized pastels because I happen to have 4 spare square frames but today I saw a greater scheme I had to work out first.
Man Ray’s solarization was on my mind when I made this one. Mondriaan also was because he strived for an ideal division of planes in a certain space.

I saw this great vintage picture of a nude on the roof top of an open van and I liked the styled planes it already showed: the squares in the open door, some round ones in the model and some great diagonals. The woman has great nipples and I guess I will not post this one on some of the social media.
