One of llyn’s biggest inspirations and her favorite painter is Gustav Klimt. He was an Austrian painter. His father engraved gold for his living. His “Golden Phase” is probably what he is best known for today. His often used gold leaf in his paintings, which I think gives them a “jewelerly” quality. Mosaics, Byzantine Imagery and decorative aspects are characteristic of his paintings. Here are a few images of his work for you to see! If you like them, he is well worth checking out further! enjoy!
