Gustav Klimt - The Three Virgins

A lot of the work for College was artist related in that we were encouraged to study and take inspiration from the work of professional artists and develop our own work and ideas from that starting point

I love the work of Gustav Klimt so, for inspiration, I used "The Three Virgins" as a starting point for my initial textile studies

I chose it because it's full of colour, but it's a bit "busy" so I made a small "viewer" from card which I placed over the picture to narrow down a small portion of it

The area I've used is interesting because it's part of two separate patterns with two different colour schemes
