© artwork by Elizabeth Schuch 2012 for the Seattle Opera
I did 3 versions - one based on the idea of the fan, one minimalist, and the final version shown here. It was inspired by the colour palette of the prints of Japanese artist Hiroshige and the style of his floral arrangements. To add my own touch I researched real butterflys, separate flowers, gradiated backgrounds, and a touch of art nouveau style!
You can buy the design on posters and products in their opera shop online - www.seattleopera.org/shop/ - plus see previous designs I created just for them, including Tristan and Isolde, Carmen, Don Quixote (one of my favourites!), Lucia di Lammermoor, and The Barber of Seville.
