Parzival (watercolor on paper)


Parzival is one of my favorite literary figures, although my main source is
the Wolfram Von Eschenbach story, Parzival, not Le Morte d'Arthur. Here's my attempt to portrait the legendary Grail knight in one of his lonelier moments.
For interested parties, here is Parzival underway: Parzival in steps

Thanks for your kind comments. This has always been a personal favorite; I'm not sure why. I think it has something to do with the warm light.
Paintings of this size often translate poorly to such small internet formats. Like most art it is best experienced live.

Parzifal. Yes, Steinerbevegelsen har satt merke i din sjel. Jaja, vi formes av alt som vi opplever. Fint bilde, som vanlig.
