Saturday 16th Novembern2019 I had Julia Gómes Avilés over as a model again. I wanted to express her dancing skills by a dynamic pose in which she holds her foot and combine it with her bodily features running off paper like natural waves.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I am on track doing some new nudes with my favorite model of Indian descendance.
Drawn in one of the monthly live drawing sessions at Studio Brugman, Voorburg, Netherlands.
A pastel version of the graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism (singularity) 01-06-17’.
A pastel version of the graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 26-05-17’. I used the primary colours red, yellow and blue to honor ‘De Stijl’, a dutch art movement that celebrates its 100 birthday this year.
