It all started with a vision that came to me early early in the morning. Thats when I did a rough sketch but once I had the vision down I cleaned up the sketch to make the vision clear and exact.
I then had to make a decision as to what medium I wanted to paint this piece on. I knew my last piece was done on wood and I realized then how much I enjoyed working on wood. So I decided that I wanted to do this piece on wood as well. Then the dilemma of the size was the next issue I couldn't determine whether to go with the same as I had done before or larger.
I had been recently dreaming about creating detailed pieces that are inspired by Gustav Klimt and other great masters from the past. I dreamed so much about it that I even went got a few hard back colorful vivid books showcasing art in Neo Classical, Art Nouveau, Renaissance, Surrealism styles and genres.
I myself tend to gravitate towards a hodge podge of surrealism, art nouveau with a lowbrow twist if you will lol. Any way if you follow you have seen progress pics on this piece. So without further ado....
