gypsy and horse by bluefooted gypsy and horse by bluefooted
Sort of an attempt at Klimt's style - without everything that makes his work great, though ;) Ink and gouache.

Actually the first thing I thought when I saw this was that the colouring style was a lot like Klimt's! Great job!

I thought klimt right away just from seeing the thumbnail, I reckon this version of his style works really well! :)

I see the Klimt, but the layout and pose reminds me of Neilsen. Very nice.

Thank you..after sifting thru heaps of ignorant racist, or just plain stupid stereotypes, it is nice to find an image that depicts what real Roma are like. It very much makes me think of the Domari in the Middle East, of which I am from my mother's side.

Well, you definitely hit your target! Before I read your description, I thought 'hm, that's very Klimt-esque!) XD But you're being hard on yourself if you think it's 'sans everything that makes Klimt great'. Personally I prefer a cleaner style than his- namely, the sort of freedom and flow he made with his backgrounds and his shapes, but tamed in cleaner lineart and solid forms- like the gypsy's cloth, or the bamboo in the background. (At least, it seems like bamboo to me. ^_^)

Great job with the color scheme, as well- bold and yet muted in all the subtler details. (Her expression, the bangles on her wrist, the touch of color in her hand or the slight gold underneath her shawl.)

Ah. This painting speaks so much to me, and it seems to convey so many feelings. She dons this bright and exuberant veil, yet her face is pale and submissive, looking down, probably reflecting memories by her most prized possession and only companion, a black stallion. Being part Roma, this really touches, and although you'd probably discard this as just another quick sketch, thanks for the upload. Good job, great work, keep it up.
