Some time ago on Instagram I saw a beautiful woman showing a seated position of herself. I asked her for permission to draw her and decided to employ only my solarization effects of late.
These times I miss my model and look forward to have her over to sit for me again
Last August international dancer and model Julia Gómez Avilés came over to my studio where we, together with fellow artist Julia Filement, had a wonderful live session.
This is the fourth drawing of model Julia Gómez Alivés in which I combined my roundism with colors.
The second drawing I did of my Spanish model Julia Gómez Avilés.
The third drawing of Julia Gómez Avilés rendered with colour pencils. Last week I bought a great collection of Prismacolour pencils that brought me great joy using them
Yesterday I had famous dancer and choreographer Julia Gómez
Creation is a transformational process. I am fascinated by the thought I evoke chaos turning my graphite pencil fillings into dust and my pencil eraser into crumbles, but at the same time creating something new.
Another session with my model and I used an unusual point of view: above her and it took the challenge to capture the foreshortened shapes of her body.
I always tell my students that art is about seeing one thing in another, just like tasting wine and describing it by comparing to something completely different than wine itself, like chocolate, red fruit, etc.
