Sans titre – 30-03-18
Following my previous sans titre drawing this one shows more clairobscur (chiaroscuro), giving it a rather impressionistic look. I kept the cubistic forms that define Marilyn Monroe in my roundism style because as an artist I know it is all about seeing one thing in another. It was the challenge to create maximum impression and feel of a tangible person based on abstracted forms, using a perfect harmony between variation and repetition of values, directions and forms. My motto is: In case of doubt follow the light (and the darkness that surrounds it).
