After a series and a couple of commissions it was time to do another in my Roundism series. There are many positions a model can show but I particularly like this one with the slanted position of the legs. A great opportunity to show heavy tonal rhythmic cadences whereas the body is folded into a giant zig-zag. I kept the abstraction quite simple without any nifty deformations. I didn’t do a front-to-end fill-out of the paper so the heavy tonal violence could breathe a bit. Besides that, leaving blank the lower left corner and the upper right one also echoes the diagonals in the body stucture.
