About This Work

Rather Curvy Graphite Pencil drawing ‘Art Deco Nude29-08-22’ is the next one in line after ‘Sienna – 25-08-22’. The model for that one was great but also a bit slender. The bended knee almost seemed a bit off, even though I already made it a bit less volumnous. In general I like slender models because they show sound and clear anatomy of body parts. Models with too much overweight can look a bit amorphous sometimes. Not unlike the next model I used although she looked rather curvy. Lucky me! Darkest One to Date The reference photo I used is from the 1920s I think. It could be earlier though. I look it up in google images but to no avail. No matches, so I can’t give credits for the beautiful composition and use of light and dark. The sheets around her body were very dark so I made some clearer contour delineations in those ones. On the other hand they made the highlights and even the midtones popping out of her body. Therefor, my drawing is a bit tuned down. However, it is one of the darkest drawings I made in these series. Art Deco immediately came to mind, again! I guess that could be total nonsense. Why is it that I think of this style when I gaze at these kind of pictures from the 1920s and 1930s? Because of the era? Style Naming I guess I am still struggling to give these drawings a suitable name for the sake of namegiving. These days an artist has to write art statements so his viewers can see what he or she’s up to. Not that I mind. I like writing about my art. It reminds me to my days as a lawyer when I wrote much more. Now I can write about basically whatever I want, not restricted to legal stuff anymore. So I write about what I feel and what I did on paper or linen. I also define my art works. One definition is a title and another is a definition of style. So interested people can find me. Crazy though. I am a visual 2D artist. Why should I give titles and come up with a name for this style? Why don’t you give me one?
