Manon – 11-10-19 (sold)

Impressionistic portrait pastel drawing

A commissionary piece. The girl has natural blonde hair, alabaster skin and blue eyes. It goes without saying that it was senseless to put her in full daylight. I let her sit for me ‘contrejour’ so the light from behind would be shattered through her blonde hair like through a prisma.

Wouter – 08-11-17 (sold)

Impressionistic portrait pastel drawing

A commissioned piece done in an impressionistic style with lots of clairobscur. I had to come up with a solution for depicting his pale skin hues and still rendering them too unsaturated.

Nude – 21-12-16 (sold)

impressionistic nude pastel drawing

Did this one for a Chinese collector who wanted to have a copy the same pastel from 2012 which he acquired as well. The Chinese are into realistic western art nowadays.

Laura – 01-04-15 (sold)

Impressionistic portrait pastel drawing

A commission piece done in an impressionistic style with lots of clairobscur. I liked doing the blue in the hair at the left top side, showing the blue sky just outside the window.

Meyendel – 16-02-15 (sold)

Impressionistic treescape pastel drawing

A more cubistic pastel drawing of Meyendel, following the previous ones. I like this ones better because I dared to put the cubes through the branches so the drawing becomes fragmented.

Another pastel drawing I made at Meyendel in the dunes just outside The Hague. Being the first drawing after my graphite pencil drawing ‘Meyendel 2 – 12-06-14’ I wanted something different.
