This drawing depicts Lily Elsie, Edwardian actress and singer. I liked the hair volume, its curls and planes. More reason to extend the series ‘sans titre’ once more. In the compositionary stage I started, like always, dividing space into planes and came to the idea to counterbalance straight linear structures with softer roundish blurs. Hence her fine features still would be captured while abstract essence will remain the dominant factor. It is some kind of mixture of cubism and my personal style roundism.
