cubistic nude pastel drawing

Nude – live drawing session 1 – 26-03-16

(at Art Centre Brugman, Voorburg, Netherlands)


A mixture of impressionism, realism and cubism. More of a styling really but  the main theme in my ever search for a new kind of cubism these last years. I want to create some kind of atmospheric depth and combine it with cubist elements but not with the sole object to suggest views from different sides on an object at the same time but to see new things while not loosing figuration, like interesting planes and shapes, divisions in planes, etc. In this respect it tends more to a surrealist view on seeing different things in one object at the same time.
