Bettie Page – 20-05-16
In retrospective this is an ode to my deceased cat who died in November 2016. This is her, reclining in the sun, a couple of months earlier, when she was still going strong.
Sometimes they roam about the streets of beach town Scheveningen, part of The Hague, at the North Sea.
Roundism – 06-05-16 (sold)
A depiction of my love for the return of the sun and life in nature, symbolized by spring blossom.
Part of the roundism series although it has surrealistic elements as well.
A mixture of cubism, surrealism and art-deco that I made to honor Man Ray.
A surrealistic graphite pencil drawing of Bettie Page, American pin-up and 1950s celebrity.
Part of the roundism series, a continuation of the ‘birth of new cubism series’.
Once in a while I want to do something else like this one.
A rather realistic looking nude of my favourite model, although she was subject to a certain degree of styling according to my principles of roundism.
A graphite pencil drawing of my favourite model again in a slight roundistic way.
A rather realistic drawing done in clairobscur of my favorite model in which I wanted to depict the shiny skin.
My favourite part of the dunes at The Hague, Netherlands in cubistic forms.
A deviation from the first Tree at Voorburg. This one has roundish shapes rather than straight.
The first tree out of a series of 2 tree drawings.
A woman I met on deviantart posted explicite pictures and was asking for artists to paint / draw her. I asked for a decent one and this was the result.
After my drawing of Rotterdam – Coolhaven I wanted to do Delftshaven – another part of the old harbour area of Rotterdam but in a slight cubistic way.
A rather impressionistic view on Coolhaven (part of the harbour of Rotterdam). I made this drawing inspired by a trip to Rotterdam when I passed by the Coolhaven and I lost a contact that day so I saw it quite blurry.
Part of the sans titre series, depicting Bette Davis, American actress and celebrity.
Part of the roundism series. I wanted to open up the body again so a spectator could wander through it freely without being blocked by a closed form.
A drawing of my favourite model.
A combination of straight building lines and round branches like I applied in another earlier drawing Rijswijk – 04-12-14
Marlot Forest is around the corner from where I live and once I saw a woman and a cow there.
Sometimes it happens that you see faces in trees and water. Such was the case when I came to ‘t Meertje, a place near Ooij and Nijmegen, Gelderland, Netherlands
I wanted to open up the model as maximally as possible without losing the recognition of the anatomical basics. It is with a collector from the United Kingdom now.
Portrait of my dear colleague and friend Julia Filament who has a very round face, so I felt myself forced to break her up in straight lines and planes.
My hometown Nijmegen at Gelderland, Netherlands in a slight cubistic way but also impressionistic
An experiment with cubism / roundism applied to a site that’s familiar to me: The former protestant church at the Ooij, at Gelderland, Netherlands.
I strived to draw a body through which you could wander about in light without boundaries.
