So Many Themes, So Few to Make

It was time to do another in my Roundism series  after couple of commissions such as ‘Friends- 29-07-20’. Many themes to draw but so little time to do them all. One could choose cats and dogs, people, still lifes, landscapes and what have you not. Bestowed upon me the heavy burden to do nudes and why not? Being a bachelor I have more than time to pick the nude of my fancy and draw her.

A Giant Zigzag

There are many positions a model can show but I particularly like this one with the slanted position of the legs. A great opportunity to show heavy tonal rhythmic cadences whereas the body is folded into a giant zig-zag. It almost looks like some kind of knitted pattern. You know these elaborate celtic knots, right? Often I try to unravel them with my eyes. Who could unfold the mysteries of a woman?

Simply and Essential

I kept the abstraction quite simple without any nifty deformations. In this respect I didn’t do a front-to-end fill-out of the paper so the heavy tonal violence could breathe a bit. Besides that, leaving blank the lower left corner and the upper right one echoes the diagonals in the body stucture. To me it is the rhythym of light and dark plains that show repetition in variation and variation in repetition. Maybe it is just like everywhere else on this planet Earth and in the Universe.
