Roundism – 31-03-20 (sold)

Solarized Geometric Roundism

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. See what that might bring me. I combined some basic geometry (circular, square and triangular forms) with abrupt tonal contour delineations and softer gradient ones, creating rhythym and variation. 

Trying out Techniques

I guess I am trying out new tecnniques every time so my roundism style can evolve. I think everything is an ever continuum of creation and learning. Solarisation or inverting tonal regions might be my new learning curve.

Evolution in Roundism?

Since I have no brother to reach out to like Vincent van Gogh, these writings I address the spectator: What direction do you think I should be moving to with my roundism Style? I guess no one can tell but me, but I am not in the future yet. By the way, I sold this one quickly so I must be doing something good.
