Before last Tuesday’s model session I thought of a great pose I instructed to my model.
Based on my previous graphite drawing ‘Roundism – 11-01-18’ I made this one in pastel, allowing me to study the female body covered in oil.
A commission to do a pet was a big challenge for me. I have never done a dog before.
A somehow expressionistic kind of pastel drawing that came from a live drawing session with my favorite model.
Part of the roundism series. I once was in Amsterdam teaching for an international group of expats and we used an Italian model who posed for us like a still.
I was hovering over my regular model and was charmed by this unusual angle. Perhaps you can forgive me when I tell you that I made the pastel from a picture I took that session because otherwise I had to keep my head upside down the whole time.
A pastel in the roundism series. I think it might be the first one. Looking back I think I was very risky with the colour scheme but I wanted to enforce the jump-like figure. It’s owned now by a private Chinese collector.
I particular like this one because it suits my expectations I had of an open field of geometrical shapes forming a nude woman.
An early very abstract cubist pastel that I like to do. The planes look so scatteered that I decided to call it ‘elementary particles’. It’s in Quatar now bought by a private collector.
With this pastel I was unfolding my way of cubism with different means than graphite only. This one is in Scotland in the hands of a private collector.
