Surrealistic Frida Kahlo nude graphite pencil drawing

I am not sure what I thought about her, except for her strong personality. I sometimes liked her paintings and then I didn’t. What I have in common with her is that we both are autodidacts and that we like(d) to go our own way in life. Somehow I always come across her once in a while and that is why I decided to draw her. I saw a lovely – rare – nude photograph and thought I’d include her in my sans titre / roundism series.

Cubistic portrait colored pencil drawing of Tallulah Bankhead

In this drawing I tried to capture the edgy character of U.S. actress Talullah Bankhead and still bring softness to her face.

Cubistic portrait graphite pencil drawing of Faye Dunaway

I was captured by the high lights at the top and the bottom and decided to keep the planes straight, putting the stress on the rough edged character of the figure.

Cubistic Diana Ross graphite pencil drawing

I always liked Diana Ross (except for that ghaslty song ‘My Old Piano’) and when I saw a video recently I was intrigued by this shiny 80-dress oozing out glitter and glamour.

Cubistic portrait graphite pencil drawing of Catherine Deneuve

When I saw a picture of a young Catherine Deneuve I immediately saw the potential for my roundism style.

Sans titre – 30-03-18

Cubistic portrait graphite pencil drawing of Marilyn Monroe

Following my previous sans titre drawing this one shows more clairobscur (chiaroscuro), giving it a rather impressionistic look.

Sans titre – 05-01-18

Cubistic portrait graphite pencil drawing of Vivian Leigh

A new one in the sans titre series depicting Gone with the Wind actress Vivian Leigh. I like her cool looking appearnce hiding a turmoil of complex emotions, wandering from depression, alcoholism to briljant actorship and back, ending in her death by tuberculosis.
