Cubistic nude 05 (2013) (sold)

One I did as a commission. It is a combination of straight planes and round forms putting the stress on the model’s movements.

Looking back at this pastel drawing I see that this one presents a major break through in my development of my style roundism as it is today. All the elements already are there (division of negative space into roundish planes, contrast in straights and curves). The body still is a little bit closed up though. I would do that differently nowadays.
