Move over, Hokusai Bunny: I have a new favourite. Gustav Klimt is one of my favourite artists, one whose art work inspires me the most, so perhaps it should come as no surprise that I really enjoyed painting a Klimt Bunny and that I am really pleased with the outcome. I used a pearlised yellow paint for the background and then shades of yellow, gold and bronze for the bunny. I borrowed patterns from Klimt paintings and simplified them for the bunny’s torso and ears. I love all the patterns and the way the whole wee painting glistens and shines.
To see what my kids and I created in response to our studies of Klimt’s art work, head on over to my personal blog.
