Who knew the two could go together so well! I think anyway. I have a large number of these, different shoes with different camouflage and am hoping to start showing then off again (there are a few already posted in January 2012). This one uses some of the colours used often by German artist Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, another artist with whom I became enamoured during my trip to Germany last spring. Schmidt-Rottluff was an artist with versatility with many watercolour works, oil works, pencil and charcoal sketches as well as prints. I own a book of his works ” Karl Schmidt-Rotluff: Eine Monographie by Magdalena M. Moeller, Publikation des Brucke-Museums Belin, 2010″. It is a fabulous book and although written in German, I have been making my way through it! Enjoy, explore the works of Schmidt-Rottluff and keep making art!
