Who would have ever though of Geesje Kwak in Space? Of course she already was fond of higher spheres.
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.
Just on the brink of Christmas I thought I should make a roundism drawing looking rather risqué. It was a strange and hefty year for us all, I think.
Years ago I saved a vintage picture of a nude on the beach. Origin unknown and my best guess would be from the 1930s or 1940s. The picture was rather grainy and but it showed a great composition of a female body in slanted position.
In my classes I often use ‘The Entombment of Christ’ by Caravaggio to demonstrate how artists normally distribute space. Next to this, in my eyes a great artist is one who lets the composition reflect the idea the main theme has to to convey.
The previous drawing Roundism – 06-11-20 was set up rather elementary, contary to this one.
After Roundism – 27-10-20 I thought to postpone future colored pencil drawings for a while and return to graphite pencil.
Last model session resulted in a nice pose through which I was inspired to continue my roundism series.
A cat comes in handy when you are out of options and do not want to simply draw a pretty picture of a beautiful woman.
And now for something completely different: cows in Marlot. I wanted to change the subject for once and do a drawing similar to the horses in my drawing Laren 30-04-20.
