It so happened that I was instructing a knight on horseback to prance in front of me so I could do a live painting on him, then all of a sudden this beautiful maiden was ruling us both.
I am always looking for inconventional vantage points as to looking at a model and this position seemed both sensual and integrous as implicitely explicit.
My model came with this pose Modonna used for one of her albums. Originally it was intented to do square sized pastels because I happen to have 4 spare square frames but today I saw a greater scheme I had to work out first.
This oil painting is based on my drawing ‘Nude – 17-06-15’. An artist often sees one thing in another. Salvador Dali saw a rhinoceros in Vermeer’s Lacemaker. I saw a horse in a women’s thigh.
Last year I used dancer Julia Gómez Avilés as a model. Next to being a wonderful person for an artist she is ideal because of her flexibility.
This drawing is a protest and and prestudy altogether. The latter for the sake of a bigger painting and the first because I need to be more clear about nudity once again.
This drawing is to celebrate human achievements and imagination in particular. To see one thing in another is something very real, surreal and metaphysical altogether.
This drawing is to celebrate the holy bond between the artist and his model.
After my last drawing ’11 bestialities – 09-02-19’ I got the hang of it and decided to do once more.
One thing in another. I try to see it all the time. Sometimes I fail, another time I see more clearly.
