This graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 20-01-23’ is the first one of its kind this year. After ‘Venus Lamenting – 13-01-23’ I wanted to do a similar one. However, it turned out to become something completely different.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 30-12-22’ is the last one of this year. After Neo Deco – 25-12-22 I wanted to end this year in the style that brought me success the last decade.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 22-12-22’ follows after ‘Neo Deco – 10-12-22’. Usually I make one drawing per week but my mind was occupied with an oil in progress.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Woman in a Red Kimono – 03-11-22’ counterparts the one I made last year cubistically.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 28-10-22’ follows my cubist interpretation of Louise Brooks’ facial features. The latter was done in colored pencil. However, I had a good reason to do this one in matt graphite only.
Enter my graphite pencil drawing ‘Louise Brooks – 11-10-22’. After an interlude of two drawings of my regular model and a nude it was time for something different.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Darja Collin – 27-09-22’ is a natural follow-up of her portrait a week ago.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 17-08-22’ follows its angular version of two days ago. Surely Walter Bird’s reference photograph was good enough to draw two versions from it.
This Art Deco Nude as theme is not something new, the materials are. The last decade I have been using mostly Bristol paper for my graphite pencil drawings.
Finally, a new drawing and it is a new Solarized Roundism. The last solarized one I did was ‘Risque – 31-03-22’. Graphite pencil drawings do not come popping up weekly anymore since I put my mind to oil painting back in February. Occasionally one is fininished as a result of some spare time I have, waiting for my students at Brugman Art. So is this one.
