Oh god, this is going to be worse than Art Deco. In terms of posting every five minutes, I mean! Because, um, I have more to learn? ALSO ENTHUSIASM!

The thing: trying to paint Spock Prime/Gaila in the style of Klimt, for [livejournal.com profile] anodyna. Which, I have always loved Klimt but I have very limited painting experience and no real training AND NOW [livejournal.com profile] anodyna IS TEACHING ME TECHNIQUES AND IT IS MIRACULOUS.



Back a few days ago I asked [livejournal.com profile] anodyna about painting green people and she said "Impressionist Color Theory! warm next to cool = luminosity."

OMG I SHOULD HAVE LISTENED SOONER because about an hour ago I went and searched out a hi-res image of Klimt portraiture and he does this thing with, um, little stringy brushstrokes of colors next to each other and I tried it and OMG!

LOOK IT IS KIND OF WORKING:



Yes, never mind that the colors are still a little weird, HER FOREHEAD IS STARTING TO GLOW!


What do you mean, I should be writing my literature paper. Hrmph.
