Cubistic nude graphite pencil drawing

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. I strived for a little distortion so the bodyscape would interact and breath with de negative space. I exaggerated the dark tones in some blocks in order to create the necessary rhythym and diction. Great to deviate from my regular roundism once in a while.
