cubistic nude pastel drawing

Before last Tuesday’s model session I thought of a great pose I instructed to my model.

Roundism – 18-01-18

cubist nude pastel drawing

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.

Reclining nude – 28-01-15

expressionistic nude pastel drawing

A somehow expressionistic kind of pastel drawing that came from a live drawing session with my favorite model.

Roundism – 13-01-15

Cubistic nude pastel drawing

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.

Reclining nude – 10-11-14

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.

Roundism – 06-10-14 (sold)

Surrealistic nude pastel drawing

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.

Cubistic Nude – 28-03-14

I particular like this one because it suits my expectations I had of an open field of geometrical shapes forming a nude woman.

Elementary Particles (2014) (sold)

Cubistic nude pastel drawing

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.

Cubistic Nude 07 (2014) (sold)

Cubistic nude pastel drawing

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.
