The Lovers
acrylics on canvas
This is the completion of the previously posted Warm Tones.
It was inspired by Klimt's The Kiss. Klimt is one of my favourite artists and when I was in Vienna I visited The Belvedere which is now a museum of fine art. The Kiss was hanging there and it was superb. I could have just stood and looked at it for hours. So when Warm Tones suggested the vague shape of the lovers outlined I used the idea of Klint's painting for The Lovers. After intensifying the depth of field I simply added some hints of colour to finish it off and keep it simple.
