klimt challenge


Gustav Klimt is one of my favorite artist's. When Sharon Tomlinson suggested a challenge inspired by Klimt, I jumped at the chance. The approach to the 5x8 collage, is not the norm for me. (another challenge) I started with a scrap of an old watercolor painting, layered some transparent and opaque handcrafted papers, and proceeded to paint the face and hand with acrylics. Circles were cut from magazine pages and collaged in jig saw fashion along with two three dimentional doodle motifs. Handpainted textures finish the background. Visit Sharon's Blog to see her fun and wonderful artwork. You might even like to join the challenge.

Hi Cory,
I finally made it back to tell you that it is still wonderfully "Klimt". I like the new hand a lot but as I told you the other was good too. Thank you for trying the challenge. Your's inspires me and that's what is fun when the inspiration just keeps going in circles.

Oh, one more thing. I wish you had left the first photo up and showed the change. That's fun to see. Next time OK.
