Last August international dancer and model Julia Gómez Avilés came over to my studio where we, together with fellow artist Julia Filement, had a wonderful live session. This drawing is from a reference picture I took during that session. My aim was to prolong my search for combining realism, impressionism and cubism, resulting in my personal style ‘roundism’. I was focused on the angular position and enforced it with some strong diagonal movements across the paper. Of course, whereever Julia will be, vortices come popping out.
