kandinsky loves color

Wassily Kandinsky played a special role in my art education. The parents of a friend of mine had a Kandinsky print in their living room. I was ten years old, and I'd never seen an abstract before. I was blown away.

I've always thought it's a good exercise for an artist to copy a painting they admire. I'll leave it to you to figure out (if you're interested) which Kandinsky inspired me to make this mixed-media piece: paper, glue, acrylic paint and markers. Kandinsky's eye for composition is a heck of a lot better than mine, so please view this as an homage, not an attempt at an exact copy.


  1. Is it "Mit und gegen"? Well done, Fi!

    1. Yup, that's it, Sabine: "Mit und gegen." =smile=

  2. This is a sparkling one Fi, I bet you had a nice time making this one!

  3. Again, it is so good to see you participating and I do hope you are on the mend. Love this. I am not that familiar with his work, I mean I know it, but I am now going to look through my art books and study his handiwork!
