Originally when discussing what to paint on the model, we didn’t have this piece in mind. When the model arrived at the studio, she flipped through a Klimt calendar and made a remark that Klimt was her favorite artist. As we looked through the images, we noticed that the figure in “Judith” has a very similar hair style as the model’s, so we decided to choose that piece for the painting.
In the editing, I made the face on the painting the focal point as it is in the original painting and very common in Klimt’s painting. I did that by reducing the contrast of the figure and applied colors so she blend with the background while preserving the colors in the painting.
