After Two Interludes

Graphite pencil drawing ‘Art Deco Nude – 16-09-22’ follows after two impressionist interludes. Park Hoog Oostduin – 14-09-22. I made because I was quite content with the leafy appeance in Het Sterrenbos – 12-09-22. Turns out the Ingres paper supports blurry strokes nicely. I most certainly will do more in the near future now Autumn is approaching. For the time being I also wanted to pick a another vintage picture from the 1920s. Unfortunately I don’t have anyone to give credit to. I google images searched it but didn’t find any author. Hail to him or her!

Extrapolated Lines

As to this motif I suffered from the same insecurity as in Art Deco – 11-08-22. That one also shows a female form that has her arms and knee stretched out. That makes a figure quite ‘open’ so-to-speak. As an artist you have to make a choise what to depict. If you want to show the whole figure that means there’s an awful lot of negative – abundant – space around her. Hence the extrapolated lines, stemming from the bodily features. I like to think it’s my own invention but I don’t know for sure. Instead of keeping the very end of the paper untouched I hatched the paper almost completely black in this one. I liked the dramatic effect it had in my last cubist nude.

Batsheba?

Extrapolated lines automatically enclose planes when they intersect. I’d like to think that says something about the theme. I don’t know. I tried to hatch as many of such planes close to the body to a complete black. Planes farther away from the body I rendered slightly lighter. Lo and behold, I even got myself a foreshortened Star of David to the left of her buttocks. What could that mean? That she is jewish or that Jahwe support female nudity? Another Batsheba by accident?
