Die Fledermaus

This is the seventh in the series featuring glass and flowers. The piece starts to move the series towards abstraction, and the white bat flower and glass by Tapio Wirkkala and Antonio da Ros provided the excuse to get free with the paint. "There is no space, no light, and no substance there, only paint on paper" (Tom Hoffman).

Die Fledermaus
Watercolour
25 x 25 cm

Super strong use of colors and a fun composition.

I really like the contour lines and juxtaposition of color shapes. Very engaging.

So gorgeous, John, with loose color application and the tendency towards abstraction.

Re: Die Fledermaus

You have really mastered the medium. Total control. I do watercolour and could not come up with something like that. Kudos to you.
