Description

‘Figure Composition’ is pure fantasy, depicting mythical creatures, nymphs, exotic animals and pirates. The vibrant blues in this watercolour are complemented by gentle, soft hues that lead the eye in a circular motion around the work. Norman Lindsay’s exceptional attention to detail helps to create this a fantastical composition.
