This reclining nude is completed two days after the last model session I held at my studio. Being the first drawing I completed after July’s session means last month’s drawing has not been completed yet. This one was relatively easy though.

Together with a student I had a lovely model session at the Binckhorst in The Hague. She invited me to come to her studio because she had a friend who wanted to sit for us. Actually the same sofa was used as for the previous model session.

This graphite pencil drawing of Maassluis is an inbetween exercise. Lately I am fantasizing about combining ‘realism’ or whatever realism might mean to an artist and my personal roundism style.

Some time ago I visited De Smorenhoek, a small but long meadow surrounded by wood embarkements. From Beek-Ubbergen it runs upwards to Berg en Dal.

After my sketch of Louise Brooks – 10-10-20 I wanted to do more in my hatched strokes style. Yesterday’s model session offered me the opportunity again to draw with a live model in front of my eyes.
