Who would have ever though of Geesje Kwak in Space? Of course she already was fond of higher spheres.
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.
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.
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.
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.
At the Binckhorst I met a model who posed nude for me and a student of mine. The live model sketch was in pastel and in fact I got the taste to do some more.
Together with a student I had a lovely model session at the Binckhorst in The Hague. She invited me to come to her studio because she had a friend who wanted to sit for us. Actually the same sofa was used as for the previous model session.
Sheep have more fun or do they? It so happened that my dear friend, poet and photographer Alexis de Roode went for a little stroll in nature.
Last Saturday I went to the Heineken Music Hall near the Johan Cruijff ArenA for my second vaccination shot. On the other side of the A2 there is Ouderkerk aan de Amstel, a village to the south of Amsterdam.
This drawing of a woman in a red kimono is based on a session with my regular model. It so happened that I teamed up with a student of mine who rents a lovely studio in The Hague.
