Rhossili Bay and Gustav Klimt

My latest painting focuses on the sweep of Rhossili Bay in the Gower Peninsula. A large part of the image focuses on a large craggy cliff. Seeing this cliff when making my preliminary sketches made me think of the beautful shapes within Gustav Klimts famous painting 'The Kiss'. I decided to paint the cliff part of the painting using shapes reminiscent of the cloak in 'The Kiss'. I also used bold colours and textures within the painting to emphasise the strength and beauty of Rhossili Bay
