Risque – 24-03-22

expressionist nude pastel drawing

The first pastel drawing in the Risque series and was long overdue. At the beginning of February I started this one just to fill the time waiting for my students.

Model Session – 14-03-22

impressionist nude graphite pencil drawing

While creating my recent series of oil paintings suddenly I felt it was time to have a new model session.

Claudia – 06-12-21

cubist portrait graphite pencil drawing

Claudia is one of my talented students and she is about to turn 60 years old. Unfortunately I cannot give it to her personally because a planned surprise party is thwarted by Corona. Some luck however. The drawing will be included in a sort of liber amoricum and at first opportunity next year the party’s on for real. Anyway, I hope she likes it.

Solarized Roundism – 26-11-21

cubist nude graphite pencil drawing

This graphite pencil drawing ‘Solarized Roundism – 26-11-21’ concerns a pose I had my model strike a couple of sessions ago. Strangely it takes me back a year ago when I experimented with solarization during the first lockdown in the Netherlands.

The Evelation of Julia Filament – 15-11-21

surrealist model graphite pencil drawing

It is time for the elevation of Julia Filament. Sunday 7th November I finally met her again and we went to the Singer Laren Museum. She is a fine artist, graphic designer and great model.

Reclining Nude – 19-09-21

realistic nude pastel drawing

This reclining nude is completed two days after the last model session I held at my studio. Being the first drawing I completed after July’s session means last month’s drawing has not been completed yet. This one was relatively easy though.

Geesje Kwak – 04-09-21

cubist girl graphite pencil drawing

My previous graphite pencil drawing ‘Geesje Kwak – 25-08-21’ was executed in my hatched strokes style and I kinda like it. Sometimes you just feel like doing this or that but in this particular case I understand better why.

Geesje Kwak – 29-08-21

Breitner took a couple of pictures of her in some backyard, perhaps his own. Who knows? For some reason I was inclined to use the principles of singularity as laid down in a drawing like Roundism (Singularity) – 01-06-17.

Geesje Kwak – 13-08-21

cubist portrait graphite pencil drawing

After I drew the portrait of Geesje Kwak last month I discovered another picture taken by Breitner. It is slightly different and shows a bigger part of her body rather than her face only.
