I am doing some still life studies and also trying to work in the spirit of Klimt to learn about pattern. I got a used book on Klimt and find his work very fascinating. To me, right now the whole world looks like a Klimt landscape painting. We live with so much tree texture and leaf pattern here in Gainesville. This city prides itself on its tree canopy and it is my favorite thing about it.
But my painting looks a little more like a Van Gogh painting than a Klimt but that's okay I love his work also.
