Drawing of Klimt’s Danae

A Rachel rendering of Klimt’s “Danae” – a print of which hangs on my wall.

A little artistic nudity warning for our more sensitive viewers …

(It’s most certainly not a self portrait – though Mr Creative says the face looks a lot like me. I would not be so bold!)

Some of the more subtle watercolour is lost in my scan – her skin is a little more tonal in the flesh (so to speak).

Here’s a print of the original – there’s lots of dark poorly coloured photos of it on the internet and this was the best I could find.  Ignore the sales patter!

This is a (montage) photo of the drawing with the print we have on our wall.  You can see how difficult it is to capture colours acurately!

See?  It’s an artistic boob.
