• 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
  • 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.

    Sans titre - 27-02-16 (sold)

     

    Part of the sans titre series, depicting Bette Davis, American actress and celebrity. Everyone knows Bettie Davis' eyes by Kim Karnes. Enough said? Not yet. I thought Bettie's eyes to be cubist rather than round.

    Delft - 19-08-17 (sold)

     

    As I came across Delft by bike I saw the 'Nieuwe Kerk' bathing in sunlight and thought it to be a great opportunity to send it to heaven being a Saturnus rocket standing on a launch platform. After all, what are churches good for anyway except as sending out a signal to whatever God you want to believe in?

    Nude - 07-12-16

     

    A work in which I combined colour saturation with complementary colour schemes. Working with my Indian model always is very rewarding. She has a great dark skin complexion showing all kinds of colours dependant on the lighting and I tried to capture the effect of light breaking on her thighs like light fragmentated through a prisma.

    Roundism (singularity) - 01-06-17

     

    In this drawing I tried to work out my (artistic) understanding of singularity. I came to see that bending curves to straight structures could symbolize infinity on a piece of paper that is restricted by its very nature.

    Sans titre - 05-05-17

     

    This one represents Darja Collin, fomer wife of J. Slauerhoff, a great dutch poet and writer of the 1930s. I liked combining circles, rectangulars and triangles in this one.
