Roundism – 31-03-20 (sold)

In my last drawing ‘Roundism – 29-03-20’ I employed the technique of solarisation again. It turned out to be a rather realistic one and so I decided to do another one more abstract.

Veere – 26-03-20

After my walkabout through Veere I got back to the parking lot when I saw mill ‘De Koe’ just outside the historical centre. My mind was not fixed on any style but Leo Gestel’s depiction of olive groves at Mallorca weakly lingered at the back of my head.

Veere – 24-03-20

These unusual times cause people to search for new ways to keep their minds busy. Some told me they binge watch or take virtual tours online, others turn to books still waiting for them. As an artist I just turn to what I do best for all these years: drawing and painting.

A unique situation: everybody all around the world at home and as to me: I got nothing to do except for painting and sketching but hey that is what we artists do all the time.

Roundism – 16-03-20

Since Corona has brought a new reality and forces so many countries to lock down, there is nothing much left for me but to teach some of the students that have the guts to show up and in the evenings I spend my time drawing and painting. But hey, the life of an artist always looks that way.

Roundism – 10-03-20

The Corona virus roams around Planet Earth and holds everyone tightly in its grip. Everybody stays put and I almost feel suffering from a locked-in syndrom, with no particular place to go and the only expression I can make is through the tip of my pencil and teaching the students that will come.

Roundism – 20-02-20

This day I got warned by a Reddit group moderator to tag my art work as ‘NSFW’ (Not Safe For Work). That almost exclusively means ‘including nude’: as if one should look at social media or nudity when working at all! Who gets this idea?

The premonition of Bettie Page – 08-02-20

My painting ‘The Restoration of Bettie Page’ heads for its final stage of completion. It just feels right to announce the birth of this painting by someone special and who else could do that better than High Priestess herself: Julia Filament?

Roundism – 11-01-20

Of late I was busy painting ‘The Restoration of Bettie Page’ and since a month or so drawings do not sprout from my pencil that often. But sometimes you have to let the painting be for a day and return to drawing process.

Roundism – 25-12-19

December 25th for many people is a holiday. As to me, I just keep on drawing and this one I made this afternoon at my parent’s home. Just a quick intermezzo between painting sessions.

Tristan & Isolde – 09-12-19

It so happened that I was instructing a knight on horseback to prance in front of me so I could do a live painting on him, then all of a sudden this beautiful maiden was ruling us both.

Nude – 01-11-19

Sometimes I find a model so perfectly shaped in round forms that the only way to add value is by means of recreating her through squares and straight lines.

Bente – 01-10-19 (sold)

Every woman needs a celebration and when one sees a particular beautiful one and the principles of clairobscur love to portray her, then it is time to make a move and render her in my roundism style.

Yeast – 18-09-19 (sold)

My model came with this pose Modonna used for one of her albums. Originally it was intented to do square sized pastels because I happen to have 4 spare square frames but today I saw a greater scheme I had to work out first.

Roundism – 10-09-19

I saw this great vintage picture of a nude on the roof top of an open van and I liked the styled planes it already showed: the squares in the open door, some round ones in the model and some great diagonals. The woman has great nipples and I guess I will not post this one on some of the social media.
