Always a pleasure to work with this model. Pro and friendly at the same time. I can concentrate on my painting

Copy and inspired drawings of and by Georg Grosz.
Pencil and watercolor on Paper.

Grosz is a real genius who left Germany when Hitler rises to power and lived and taught in the US.

I just started to study his works and philosophy, I am in awe.
In terms of copy and inspiration, though, I am just an imp.

Undressing

Ink and watercolor on paper.

If I could get rid of the lines, I could reach a decent level of semi-abstraction… but I LOVE drawing the lines -_-‘

Soaked Color


Less lines, more water, LOADS OF water, fortunately the paper did not failed me.

Miss I. did not like this painting of hers, yet, from the whole serie, I think it’s worth saving. Anyone interested?

Kim’s hands

Pastels on paper.

Philippe Charmes 2016

Kim’s doing kungfu (on purpose? Or just my cliche’s interpretation as a westerner?).

She is doing a marvelous pose, holding her beautiful hands in the air for 10 mimutes.

Drawn at my friend Johm Mc Arthur’s Spitting Gecko” in Hong Kong.
