  • Rotterdam – 23-07-19 In the dead of summer means I am in the midst of the outdoor sketching season. Although I did not complete this one on the spot the invention of the basic composition and planal distribution were done at Katendrecht, Rotterdam. The vista is directed at Hotel New York that nowadays looks almost encapsulated by skycrapers. I was there long ago but the cityscape almost was inrecognizable. The watertaxi was done in my studio because they keep on moving all the time. Nevertheless a new typical sight in swinging Rotterdam. Although, the drawing seems rather detailed, I kept it quite impressionistical.

  • Julia – 02-08-19 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. She can pose in many ways and has lots of stamina. This drawing is not from a live drawing session but based on a picture I saw in her Instagram account. I wanted to do this one because of the extreme pose and the challenge to render her complex body position in a credible way while still adding value to the theme. The drawing shows elements of roundism, realis mand surrealism. Graphite pencil drawing (Pentel 0.5 mm, 3B) on Canson Bristol paper (21 x 29.7 x 0.1 cm) - A4 format) Artist: Corné Akkers

  • Joe Strummer taught me to skin up...I met him in London at a Free Concert in the summer of 73.....we became good friends....he spied on the hard right....lots of Nazis in London in the 70's ....we started Rock Against Racism....this is how I remember Joe before the Clash...baby faced
  • Ethel was executed in 1953...she was innocent...she was at the eye of the storm of Mccarthyism....an icon...this drawing is taken from a rare photo of her during WW2..I love her look of determination and bravery...and the fact that the profile shot is portent of her looking bloated and stressed in her horrible, pitiless mugshot a decade later...her children have rightly been tireless in their efforts to have her rightfully exonerated...a great shame Obama got close but ultimately didn't have the balls to do it...or stand up to Assad either, for that matter

  • Roundism – 17-09-18 This is the fourth drawing of model Julia Gómez Alivés in which I combined my roundism with colors. I washed them a little bit with a Sakura water brush that works like a fountain pen. I am not a great watercolorist and since this technique is pretty new to me these watercolor pencils allowed me to take a position between a colored pencil drawing and a watercolour painting. Perhaps I do more in the future. Watercolor pencil drawing (Faber Castell – Albrecht Dührer) on Strathmore Drawing paper (21 x 29.7 x 0.1 cm - A4 format) Artist: Corné Akkers

  • Julia – 11-09-18 The third drawing of Julia Gómez Avilés rendered with colour pencils. Last week I bought a great collection of Prismacolour pencils that brought me great joy using them. I used one of the reference pictures I took during the session with Julia last August and employed some styles like impressionism, cubism and realism and combine them. Due to my pointillistic lines that through the process of divisionism create merged colour impressions, I could not use brownish and greyish pigments. The result would otherwise appear to become mud. The result is also luministic I think. Colour pencil drawing (Pentel 0.5 mm, 3B) on Strathmore Drawing paper (21 x 29.7 x 0.1 cm - A4 format) Artist: Corné Akkers
  • Summer in Holland – 25-07-18 In the dead of summer it is so hot here in The Hague I had double vision. That is why I serve two women for the price of one. Graphite pencil drawing (Pentel 0.5 mm, 3B) on Canson Bristol paper (21 x 29.2 x 0.1 cm) Artist: Corné Akkers
  • Sans titre – 30-07-18 I was captured by the high lights at the top and the bottom and decided to keep the planes straight, putting the stress on the rough edged character of the figure. I also didn’t straighten out much of the lines and planes for that reason, keeping it a kind of worked out sketch rather than to refine and soften it too much.
