I can't seem to ever get enough of Klimt. He is very hard to
paint with because the details and symbols are endless.
I think I really like to challenge myself with his work.
With "An Asian Evening with Klimt", I used his painting
"Expectations" for the wall. I always loved this piece.
He did the full body painting and just the portrait so I thought
this would be a nice piece to design this painting around.
The lovely lady is from another of Klimt's works
but I change her face to be Asian and added the gown.
Of course I wanted to use as many tones of red that
I could for this piece.
I love Asian art and all of the beautiful details they use.
I researched asian furniture and accessories for this composition
and it seemed that every single element was full of detail.
Needless to say, this painting took a "Very" long time to paint!
