Welcome Home by Loonaki Welcome Home by Loonaki
This was a welcome back home gift for a friend of mine who was volunteering in South Africa for all of last year.
I just randomly chose some famous paintings that either she or I or we both like and painted them as a collage.

It's 7 paintings by 6 different artists of the past. I will list them in a bit, but for now you all can guess, if you want. ;D

- Girl with a Pearl Earring by Jan Vermeer
- The Kiss by Gustav Klimt
- Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh
- The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli
- The Tiger by Franz Marc
- Elephants by Salvador Dalí
- The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dalí


Painted with Ecoline watercolors, Acrylics and watercolor pencils.

Wahnsinnig tolle Idee und Umsetzung! Es wirkt modern und plakativ, das Traditionelle geht dabei aber trotzdem nicht verloren. Super! :)

Vermeer, Klimt, Dalí (not very sure about that one), Botticielli, Van Gogh and a cubist (is that the right word?) that I think we've covered at art history but I can't remember his name.
