Sold a sticker of my graphite pencil drawing ‘Geesje Kwak – 12-07-21’ through Redbubble.
Today my dad Henk Akkers completed the framing of Geesje Kwak (2021). The result looks gorgeous!
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.
A day ago I experimented with Art Graf. I was quite surprized and therefor I thought it would be nice to do a portrait of Geesje Kwak.
There is this girl that I know for a long time: Geesje Kwak. Throughout the decades I visited many museums. Once in a while I also come across Breitner’s famous oil paintings in the ‘Girl in Kimono series’.
