An Aspect of Cubist Portrait Drawings

Graphite pencil drawings, which have a passing resemblance to cubism.

Dutch Artist Corne Akkers creates art in a variety of styles, depicting an array of different subjects. For today's post, I have picked his portraits and specifically the ones done in this style.

I like all of them but love the first two. The expressions, how the illustrating approach shapes these two women and the contrast. The image of them side by side, is just perfection.

It's not always the features of the face which get the treatment, sometimes it's the texture of the clothing.

When you look at them, even though the style is predominately the same, there are variations which make every one as unique as the face of the model.

An interesting approach to portraiture. A face which is easily identifiable as a face, whilst making it very different from what we are used to seeing in ourselves and everybody around.

The end of the working week for many and a very interesting post furnished with the works from a great and imaginative artist.

Ps. I gave the images some titles.
