Graphite pencil drawing ‘Art Deco Nude – 16-09-22’ follows after two impressionist interludes.
My graphite pencil drawings Het Sterrenbos – 12-09-22 and Clingendael – 31-08-22 belong together.
Today, the last day of August, I went to Clingendael with my dear friend Michelle. We were out there to take some landscape pictures and to do some drawing.
While creating my recent series of oil paintings suddenly I felt it was time to have a new model session.
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.
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.
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.
Who would have ever though of Geesje Kwak in Space? Of course she already was fond of higher spheres.
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.
