The Evelation of Julia Filament – 15-11-21

Meeting Julia

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. If you like you should check out her site. Next to enjoying Singer’s collection together I had the idea for a longer period of time to work with her again. She is probably the most beautiful girl I have met, witty and into art. Perfect for an artist like me. Some ideas came popping up for poses that day but first I thought to create a drawing based on two reference pictures of her own.

Look’s Picture

Another reference picture was Look J. Boden’s dating a couple of years back. That one I used for my graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 04-07-17’, a pastel ‘Into the Light – 15-06-17’ and an oil ‘Roundism – 11-02-18’. It is one those scarce examples that I used the same motif thrice in different mediums. That image still lingered in my mind and then I saw some pictures of her, holding her own paintings. I had this idea to work around this original picture and her holding her two times. This resulted in a drawing, within a drawing, within a drawing.

Golden Ratio

One of the striking features is a tattoo in her neck of a styled tree, a design of her own. Much to my pleasure I recognized a two golden ratio curves entwined. Surely that is something I can relate to, employing them in my works of art often. To me the golden ratio curve is one of the key features I use to induce the feeling of eternity. Another principle is singularity. This having stated I would like to express my highest regards and affection for Julia. Love to work with her again and may these session result in an endless stream of art works.
