Sometimes I find a model so perfectly shaped in round forms that the only way to add value is by means of recreating her through squares and straight lines.
Through my last drawing ‘Roundism – 19-10-19’ I got inspired to delve into the contrast of realism versus roundism again.
It was time to return to my roundism style and the position of this one inspired to me show the flow her hips suggest.
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.
