Below is another watercolor that I began with a curve that reminded me of a skull (see It Happened So Fast). I built the rest of the figure from there. The swatches in the background toward which the runner proceeds were inspired by Paul Klee’s work. I’m afraid his influence stops there. The trailing edge of the figure is mine; an amorphous murky blend of reds, blues and yellows destined to follow the runner as it traverses the paper.
