I was intrigued by the compact forms of the model’s body and especially by the curve of her tibia tot he instep of her foot.
Based on a earlier roundism graphite pencil drawing I made this pastel adding the realm of colours. I wanted the woman appear in a kind of midsummernight’s dream with lots of yellow and blues, girded with some purples and pinks.
A new graphite pencil drawing in the roundism series in which I experimented with deformations of body shapes with the purpose of keeping the forms as ‘open’ as possible, so all forms can breathe, flowing from one into another.
A rather loose cubistic sketch done with colour pencils. For the 4th time in a row I used the same (indian) model. Her skin allows me to use a lot of yellow which I counterbalanced with edgy purple planes.
During my lessons as a teacher I stell my students there is no end to perfection and one never can tell when a painting or drawing is finished.
A pastel variety on the previous drawing ‘Roundism – 02-05-17’ in which I tried to match the found styled forms to a colour scheme that would match them.
The continuation of my search for roundism.
This painting is a culmination of all drawing efforts as to the same model pose.
In The Netherlands there isn’t a single artist who hasn’t sketched Henriëtte Sibie during a live session.
Another project of my roundism series.
