Klimt Study 1- The Kiss by littlearty

My study on Gustav Klimt’s ‘The Kiss’

Sometimes you just have to copy the artist work to fully understand it. I did this awhile back when scrutinizing his art just wasn’t enough. I needed to understand more, so I challenged myself to imitate one of my long tim fav. piece.‘The Kiss’, and I have to say I’m pretty happy with the result. :)

A quick 15 mins. Pastel and graphite pencil on sketchbook.

Here’s Klimt’s Original ’The Kiss

Hi I’m Yiwen. This is my playground

    wow, this piece has always been a favourite of mine, my old flatmate had a beautiful big print of it which hung in our living room….alas when she left so too did the art! fabulous imitation here, i imagine klimt would be very flattered…

  • Thanks Tiffatron. I too have a big poster of this piece rolled up somewhere in a tube. lolz. No place to hang in my current tiny flat. But I love it nonetheless. :)
