And then the day for a planned live model session finally arrived: drawing Melina Noëlle. She is the daughter of Guinnie who is, together with her sister Gaby, responsible for the catering in Brugman art.
Graphite pencil drawing ‘Art Deco Nude – 16-09-22’ follows after two impressionist interludes.
My graphite pencil drawings Het Sterrenbos – 12-09-22 and Clingendael – 31-08-22 belong together.
Today, the last day of August, I went to Clingendael with my dear friend Michelle. We were out there to take some landscape pictures and to do some drawing.
While creating my recent series of oil paintings suddenly I felt it was time to have a new model session.
The first pastel drawing in the Risque series and was long overdue. At the beginning of February I started this one just to fill the time waiting for my students.
Claudia is one of my talented students and she is about to turn 60 years old. Unfortunately I cannot give it to her personally because a planned surprise party is thwarted by Corona. Some luck however. The drawing will be included in a sort of liber amoricum and at first opportunity next year the party’s on for real. Anyway, I hope she likes it.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Solarized Roundism – 26-11-21’ concerns a pose I had my model strike a couple of sessions ago. Strangely it takes me back a year ago when I experimented with solarization during the first lockdown in the Netherlands.
It is time for the elevation of Julia Filament. Sunday 7th November I finally met her again and we went to the Singer Laren Museum. She is a fine artist, graphic designer and great model.
Who would have ever though of Geesje Kwak in Space? Of course she already was fond of higher spheres.
