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.
Claudia is one of my talented students and she is about to turn 60 years old. Unfortunately I cannot give it to her personally because a planned surprise party is thwarted by Corona. Some luck however. The drawing will be included in a sort of liber amoricum and at first opportunity next year the party’s on for real. Anyway, I hope she likes it.
After my last drawing of Geesje Kwak I did not have many new ideas. Then I remembered I had a photo of a seated female nude by Eugène Durieu.
Today I returned to roundism again. Did you ever have the feeling that you had to burn all bridges? Something you could spend the rest of your life doing felt familiar and safe but nevertheless… Last year I did my last roundism drawing. After the completion I instinctively thought that was one final mark and then stop. Well, now I am not so sure anymore.
