I've developed a strange penchant for colors that shimmer. Golds. Silvers. Anything with a reflective quality, really. I love the quality of shimmering paints (I used paints that were already sparkly or I added a media that would give regular paints a little glint). What you end up with is a painting that takes on different qualities as the light changes throughout the day and night. You'll never get tired of looking at it because it's always changing.
As I've mentioned, I drew my inspiration (somewhat) from Klimpt. I wanted to really create a lot of patterns and colors and so on. In the end, I realized my version is a little bit "pre-school" in comparison. But a girl does like to dream. And try. And learn. And paint.
I am very very happy with this painting. I do love it. Very much.
I took a lot of photos so I could show you. Here they are:
