Roundism – 06-12-17

I was intrigued by the compact forms of the model’s body and especially by the curve of her tibia tot he instep of her foot.

Some months ago I started attending some drawing sessions at Rotterdam where I did short positions again.

Roundism – 29-11-17

Based on a earlier roundism graphite pencil drawing I made this pastel adding the realm of colours. I wanted the woman appear in a kind of midsummernight’s dream with lots of yellow and blues, girded with some purples and pinks.

Roundism – 24-11-17 (sold)

A new graphite pencil drawing in the roundism series in which I experimented with deformations of body shapes with the purpose of keeping the forms as ‘open’ as possible, so all forms can breathe, flowing from one into another.

Model session 2 @ Rotterdam – 19-11-17

Short positions at live model sketching took me back to reinvent my way rendering human bodies and together with my new found Pastelmat by Clairefontaine I was able to experiment with new ways.

Nude – 01-10-17

A rather loose cubistic sketch done with colour pencils. For the 4th time in a row I used the same (indian) model. Her skin allows me to use a lot of yellow which I counterbalanced with edgy purple planes.
