impressionistic nude graphite pencil drawing

Bedside Moonlighting – 31-08-20

Roundism – 14-08-20

In this one I started hatching up the paper with diagonal strokes like always when the motif is very dark. I did not wanted to rub them out like I am use to but quite like the hatched impression and it reminded me to the beginning of my cubist works like in ‘Round Cubism – 14-08-14’.

As you may know I often wander about and astray through landscapes I have never been before or in this particular case I know all too well. Batenburg is not far away from Nijmegen, where I was born and raised and upon my word it is a quite pittoresque village along the river Maas.

The Venus of The Hague – 24-06-20

Next move on my Venus trail. I decided to do another surrealist one or is it? I put in some of my earlier themes like ‘singarity’, ‘the golden ratio’ and combine them with ‘the collapse of the wave function’.

Estate ‘Reigersbergen’ – 16-05-20

These Corona days I wander about the region like I am used to. Nothing changed in this respect and I am more than happy that we in The Netherlands have at least some freedom of movement and that the end of our ‘intelligent lock down’ is in sight

cubistic nude graphite pencil drawing with solarisation

Roundism – 27-04-20

The next drawing in my solarized roundism series. It forms a transition from my previous abstracted cubist geometry towards a crossover to realism and surrealism. Like in previous ones I inverted some of the tonal values whereas in other parts they are kept realistic.

Valkenlaagte – 09-04-20

On my extensive trips I sometimes come across specific spots of beauty and in this case not accidentally. I saw a great mansion ‘for sale’ at the Valkenlaagte and I am sure I cannot buy it on short notice.

Oosterbeek – 07-04-20

I always find it difficult to draw an impressionistic blossom tree without falling back to depict branches and the blossom in a rather symbolic or linear way.

Voorlinden – 06-04-20
