Finally a Drawing Again
Finally, a new drawing and it is a new Solarized Roundism. The last solarized one I did was ‘ Risque – 31-03-22 ’. Graphite pencil drawings do not come popping up weekly anymore since I put my mind to oil painting back in February. Occasionally one is fininished as a result of some spare time I have, waiting for my students at Brugman Art . So is this one. It is a sort of side project, next to my main ‘Geesje Kwak’ project in progress, due for next July. Strange how these things work. I missed painting all of a sudden and so I put drawing in the fridge for a while. Since I started to paint on a daily basis I miss the invention of stuff through drawing though. Makes me realize I even did not went outside for a minute to sketch this year.
Solarisation as the Solution
As to this drawing I didn’t have many ideas left. My mind is fixated on executing some of my best drawing in oil. Next to this, I feel my Risque series is finished and so is my Geesje series. The work in progress in oil is my final piece and an elaboration of ‘ Geesje Kwak – 08-10-22 ’. Not much at hand and so I started browsing on the internet. I found a smashing photo by Laure Albin Guillot and decided to have this one as an inspirational source for my new invention. I liked the pose but the reference picture simply was too dark for my taste. Solarisation came naturally because I then could alter tonal values to my liking. This way, I could regain more of a bodily recognizability. I liked the pose though. Next came a roundistic styling, especially in the arm. No further nifty tricks needed.

About Corne Akkers
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.
