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.
It was some time ago when I did my last graphite pencil drawing in the Risque series.
Once in a while I get that itchy feeling again that makes me want to turn to roundism. The last one by that title I made half a year ago.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Risque – 11-01-22’ is the third one of Julia Filament after the session of last 30th December. As previously said I found it to be an exciting session during which she took many great poses.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Solarized Roundism – 26-11-21’ concerns a pose I had my model strike a couple of sessions ago. Strangely it takes me back a year ago when I experimented with solarization during the first lockdown in the Netherlands.
It is time for the elevation of Julia Filament. Sunday 7th November I finally met her again and we went to the Singer Laren Museum. She is a fine artist, graphic designer and great model.
After my last graphite pencil drawing of Geesje Kwak -04-09-21 I felt one was missing in the series. I found a perfect mix of roundism and classic 17th lighting in the best Caravaggio and Rembrandt tradition.
