This pastel drawing ‘Model Session – 23-01-24’ is the first I drew live since a long time.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Woman in a Red Kimono – 03-11-22’ counterparts the one I made last year cubistically.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 28-10-22’ follows my cubist interpretation of Louise Brooks’ facial features. The latter was done in colored pencil. However, I had a good reason to do this one in matt graphite only.
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.
My graphite pencil drawing Wag the Dog – 26-09-21 was waiting on the shelf to be put into oil. After my last oil Slava Ukraini – 18-04-22 I thought I’d use another surrealist theme and why not?
The West has recently become familiar with the phrase ‘Slava Ukraini’. Obviously everyone who is a democrat and values freedom above all can support the meaning of this slogan.
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.
