A cautionary tale. If they had checked their operating manuals before falling in love they wouldn't have ended up in a repair bay. 

This was originally based on Klimt's 'The Kiss'. The composition changed a lot along the way, though.

@SeDiceBisonte thanks. Yes. That's something I wanted to get from the Klimt's 'Kiss', how all the detail recedes into texture and the central focus is actually a very strong simple image. I think I was leaning quite a bit on tonal contrast with this one though.

I love the lighting and the colours, and I really love the way the focal point is partly denoted by being simpler rather than more detailed, which is the opposite of what you'd expect but which works incredibly well here. I can't really articulate it, but I think it helps to add emotion to the piece.

This is really good.

@Jeremy Thanks, I'm trying to keep a lot of my colours generally lighter in value recently and I think it helps.

Great atmosphere.

@J �o  Thanks! I did a few things with a surrounding frame last year and I've sort of drifted away from it recently.

#b236You're right with the Mucha influence. It certainly diverged from the original source quite a way.

i love klimt, but i feel a bit of influence of mucha here ;]
anyway, once again great work!
