I am doing my critique on the painting called Dragon by the artist named Xul Solar. This particular painting was completed by using watercolor on paper. Although this painting has many traits and characteristics of traditional Asian art, such as features like a Geisha, a dragon, and a sun with an epicanthic fold, it includes almost every countries flag. There is a Geisha standing or riding on a dragon (who has “human” arms and legs) with a pole or spear in her hand in the sky over some body of water. I can tell this is in the sky above water because there are fish, clouds, a moon, and a sun that has an animated feature about them (such as eyes and noses). The painting is very colorful and does not leave out any color of the color wheel. This painting’s focal point is very broad. I believe the focal point is all of the flags of different countries. Some may believe the focal point is the Geisha who is standing or possibly riding on the dragon. The medium that Xul Solar uses is watercolor on paper.
