Model – 01-12-17

Some months ago I started attending some drawing sessions at Rotterdam where I did short positions again. I liked it a lot and since there is so little time to measure things out, I had to come up with a different way of rendering the model. Contrary to my roundism style I had to rely on my trained eye for proportions, positioning and scaling and lay thick strokes of pastel right away. The result I think is a new kind of style I never employed and yesterday evening I had a great model to work on. She showed all the right curves and I used a lot of strong colours that combined would ‘grey up’ the total pastel at a certain distance. It’s the same technique (a kind of pointillistic divisionism) I used in a previous pastel I recently made of a little boy.
