Golden Roundism – 03-03-21

cubist nude pastel drawing

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 drawing ‘Free Floating Blue Wave Nude – 10-02-21’ is based on a previous graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 19-07-16’. In my art statement to that drawing I already explained my motives to render the floating female figure in my roundism style.

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.

Golden – 28-01-21

After my previous pastel drawing I decided to do a totally different one. Not in hatched strokes but smoothed out I had in mind.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Roundism – 29-11-17)

cubistic nude pastel drawing

Based on a earlier roundism graphite pencil drawing I made this pastel adding the realm of colours. I wanted the woman appear in a kind of midsummernight’s dream with lots of yellow and blues, girded with some purples and pinks.

A pastel version of the graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 26-05-17’. I used the primary colours red, yellow and blue to honor ‘De Stijl’, a dutch art movement that celebrates its 100 birthday this year.

cubistic nude pastel drawing

I always wanted to do a piece after Rembrandt’s Jeremiah lamenting Jerusalem’s destruction and I could not find a more appropiate subject than the horrific destruction of Aleppo.
