Inspired by The Kiss by Gustav Klimt
Painting with The Masters
Gold Leaf Series
24 x 24 Gold Leaf Oil Painting on Canvas
This is something that I have been wanting to do for a long
time. Although this painting was inspired by The Kiss by Klimt. It
is a close up of the upper bodies and not of the full Klimt painting.
I changed all of the symbols, colors and almost everything else as to
how I wanted to see it. I have painted many inspirations from
The Kiss as it is my very favorite of his works.
Working in Gold Leaf is a challenge but very interesting and fun.
I look forward to adding more to this series.
I have posted this piece on an angle so you can see how the light
reflects the gold leaf in the composition.
The cape is gold leaf as well and some of the geometric blocks
in his robe. I used gold leaf powder for the stars in the background
and parts of the flowers in her dress. So hard to see in a photo.
Really happy with the way it came together.
