I love the “The Kiss” by Gustav Klimt. (A very well known piece of art). I also like “Starry Night” by Vincent Van Gogh (another well know piece of art), so I decided to blend, (somewhat) the two styles in my rendering below. And of course there’s a bit of my own style in there too.
(Credit to Wikipedia for prints of each painting)
I call my rendering Love. I was fascinated by the gold coloring and romantic symbolism of Klimt and equally fascinated by the mesmerizing swirls and hues of colors of Van Gogh, The result below!
First I drew the figures and swirls in pencil and then sketched over the drawing with different colors of Ink. Darkening the background between the swirls. The colors are more vivid in the actual sketch and the gold sparkles in the light, which was an interesting effect for me to try!
All in all, it was great fun playing with the colors. I also enjoyed placing the two, slightly surreal lovers in a very affectionate and loving pose!
I hope you enjoyed too!
