As a subject for a new painting I am always looking for striking images. This time I ended up with ‘the kiss’: This time not from Gustav Klimt but from the well-known photographer Oliverio Toscani who shot this iconic image for a well-known clothing brand more than 30 years ago. I gave the couple an impressionistic touch. The entire painting, except for the eyes and lips, has been executed with only one kind of brush type ‘cat tongue’.
The work is executed in acrylic paint and measures 100 x 100 cm.
I have renamed the painting ‘The smile’. ?
