    Roundism - 10-05-17

     

    A pastel variety on the previous drawing 'Roundism - 02-05-17' in which I tried to match the found styled forms to a colour scheme that would match them. It was a hell of a job to balance them all.

    The Shins ([email protected]) 20-04-17

     

    American band 'The Shins' performed at music temple 'Paradiso' at Amsterdam last 30th March 2017. I was there and was fascinated by the strong cubistic light triangles and the colour differences (yellow, purple, red).

    Bettie Page - 24-02-17

     

    Another drawing by me of Bettie Page returning to surrealism again. After scrutinizing her features and estimating what her character would have been like I came to the inescapable conclusion that eggs, rabbits, dogs and snakes cannot be dissociated with her so I immediately put myself to work.

    Roundism - 02-05-17

     

    Part of the roundism series. I was fascinated by the squares and round forms I detected in the body.

    The return of the dutch elephants (@ Gouda) - 12-07-17

     

    Some time ago I saw a cloud that perfectly looked like a baby elephant. I got the idea to draw the canal realistally and transcend into a more abstract mid-section (trees in my roundism style) and end in a surrealistic scene, thus combining impressionism, realism, cubism, roundism and surrealism.

    Cubistic nude - 11-11-16

     

    Another model in colour and in straight cubistic planes left open to breathe. I wanted to have the negative space be an integral part of the cubistic parts as well in order to cultivate the necessary unity to obtain.

    Bettie Page - 28-08-17

     

    Returning to Bettie Page once in a while because her body was so slender and enables me to exploit my style of roundism to the max. In this drawing I tried to keep the forms open as much as possible while the extended lines beyond the forms create new forms, even animals!
