    Roundism – 06-02-18 (sold) Recently I saw a picture of a model passing by posing a great triangular shape. I used this principle and my own model (with a bob hair cut) to make a cubistic composition out of triangles, circles and rectangulars, complemented with a harmonized balance of light and darker planes, creating rhythym and diction.

    Roundism - 02-02-18 Based on a prestudy in pastel (Model – 01-12-18) I made this painting in oil. My objective was to stay in line with the fauvist colour kind of strokes (in case of the pastel they were pretty much ‘broken’ and ‘open’ strokes / patches) but also to get to a more abstract feel by means of rendering the model slighty cubistic. The couch she is lying on also is altered to my cubistic needs. Referring to previous cubist drawings I tried to paint some essential geometric shapes in it like circular, rectangular and triangular moves. Colourwise I tried to get the max saturation on the model whereas the couch shows a less saturated colour scheme. Oil on linen (60 x 80 cm) Artist: Corné Akkers

    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.
