Acrylic on Canvas
2019 The Group of Several, est. 2013 create 2 Composite paintings for January every second year. In 2019 the Gustav Klimt show was hung at the Gabriola Medical Centre, and revisited in May at the Professional Centre Gallery Centre. Five artists took sections of 12x24 canvases and worked together to finish the Composite. It took one month to complete.
The "Woman in Red" was created with Iridescent red & turquoise gold leaf for the dress circles and for the snake skin. Silver leaf was also incorporated, gold and silver paint. Judith Madsen created the face panels. In deciding on the silver background, we simplified from Klimt's original painting. The glass bowl the snake is drinking from was painted beautifully by Barb Hague.
