detail/working process – an attempt to create a watercolour-painted synaesthetic portrait of the nowadays as Austrian claimed composer Franz / Ferencz  Liszt by fusing his physiognomy & hands. (Hungarian heart, but not tongue: Although he became an ardent Hungarian nationalist, Liszt grew up speaking German and was unable to speak much Hungarian. Liszt adopted French as his eventual language of preference.)

  1. The movement in these pieces is so reminiscent and evocative of Liszt’s style. The colors are even suggestive. NICE work!

  2. thanks
    seems a bit too expressive in gesture for me the day after – unfortunately I am no musician with synaesthetic insights to design the piece more extended in coulourshades but movement of the hands & fingers

  3. I like it. In the last one he looks as if he is playing the piano on his neurones!
