This pastel drawing Golden Night – 08-02-21 is based on a previous graphite pencil drawing Roundism 10-08-20. What I do is to browse through my collection of drawing and just pick one to execute in color.
This pastel drawing ‘Golden Roundism – 03-03-21’ is based on a graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 03-01-16 (sold)’. After the previous pastel ‘Golden Purple – 25-02-21’ I thought it would be fun to pull a really old one out of the drawer.
This pastel drawing ‘Golden Purple – 25-02-21’ is based on a previous graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 14-09-19’. The latter I always liked because of its abstract quality.
This pastel Golden Cubism – 21-02-21 is the first real cubist drawing in my Golden series. After my last pastel drawing Lakshmi – 16-02-21 I realized I only made pastels in my Roundism style. The last one in that style was ‘Golden Lilac – 07-02-21’. What if I would return to the initial form of cubism I employed back in 2014.
At last: I discovered my regular model is Lakshmi, goddess of wealth, fortune, love, beauty, joy and prosperity.
This pastel drawing Golden Lilac – 07-02-21 is based on a previous graphite pencil drawing ‘Nude – 13-01-16’. Once in a while I realize I draw in graphite more often than in pastel or oil.
This pastel is in line with my previous pastel drawing ‘Golden – 28-01-21’ but that one looks rather monochrome. Time it was to add some more colors and define relations between them. After all, that is what color is all about.
After my previous pastel drawing I decided to do a totally different one. Not in hatched strokes but smoothed out I had in mind.
This nude pastel drawing in the Golden series resembles a previous pastel ‘Nude – 02-02-19’ a bit. However, I put the stress on skin hues in order to stay in line with the purpose of the series.
