About This Work

Roundism – 15-11-20 More Complex The previous drawing Roundism – 06-11-20 was set up rather elementary, contary to this one. As you may know by now I like to vary and decided to select a more complex motif. The reference picture from the 1920s or 1930s showed a model with lots of drapery and sheets around her. That would be perfect but offered also the challenge to render them in my roundism style. Besides that, still portraying distinctive features (drapery, sheets, folds, body) and also avoiding creating a messy rubble pile, I found a heavy task to bestowed with. Abstraction easily could cancel fragile and tender fabrics like the transparent cloth that shows the upstanding arm shimmering through. Interesting Body Parts Initially the reason to pick this motif was the attraction I felt for the thigh, the hip bone, buttocs up to the lattisimus dorsi. There it was: a great snake-like shadow figure streching out across the side of her body, contrasted by the sharp, angular hip bone. The scene was completed by the overall view of the main curve stretching out from head to toe. I skipped the contour delineation of the upper side of the leg so it would run over into the negative space, whereas in some parts I applied stronger contrasts between the positive and negative space. Let the Light Guide You In the end the light always make the difference. Light comes together with darkness and therefore I like chiaroscuro art works so much. In this particular case the light and shadow play make the scenery realistically plausible in spite my efforts to make it more abstract than it appears to be at first hand. Two for the price of one.
