Sometimes you come across a great motif that stimulates to draw instantly. Centainly this one did exaclty that. The diagonally positioned back and legs contrasted the vertically held lower right arm quite nicely I thought. Added Value However, I had to do more than only serve out what I saw and decided to counterbalance the slanted body position by adding dark vertical and horizontal blocks, encapsulating the body. By means of those I was enable to suggest some kind of a vague cross figure around her. Previous Drawing Compared to my previous graphite pencil drawing ‘ Roundism – 15-11-20 ’ this one is more abstracted. However, the seed of the latter was borrowed and sown into this drawing. The straight angled thigh in the previous drawing therefor was the inspirational source that spawned this one. Some Lines to Complete It In the final stage of the completion of the drawing something bothered me. What if the blocks I hatched so very dark would feel like watching a massive lump? What would serve as a suitable solution? After examining some earlier work I came to realize that adding some linear structures would counterbalance the harsh cubist blocks. As a result the curvy lines to the left of the centre make a rudimentary cross as well. At Last at First Hand The left hand and the face I kept quite simple, since it was not my objective to render the model’s exact resemblance. It was all about the body position. Last but not least, I was not satisfied with the hand in the reference picture and decided to have her point only her index finger upwards. All good things come from up high?

My work can be seen in many countries all over the world. I employ a variety of styles that all have one thing in common: the ever search for the light on phenomena and all the shadows and light planes they block in. My favorites in doing so are oil paint, dry pastel and graphite pencil. It is not the form or the theme that counts but the way planes of certain tonal quality vary and block in the lights. Colours are relatively unimportant and can take on whatever scheme. It is the tonal quality that is ever present in my work, creating the illusion of depth and mass on a flat 2d-plane. I combine figurative work with the search for abstraction because neither in extremo can provide the desired art statement the public expects from an artist. Besides all that, exaggeration and deviation is the standard and results in a typical use of a strong colour scheme and a hugh tonal bandwith, in order to create art that, when the canvas or paper would be torn into pieces, in essence still would be recognizable.
I teach art (drawing / painting) at Voorburg, Netherlands where I have my second studio next to my first at The Hague, Netherlands, where I live.
