Working on the Great Gatsby fan art

I was super excited when I saw the first trailer came out for the Great Gatsby.
Been a big fan of the director, Baz Luhrmann since Romeo and Juliet.

I did this piece inspired by the trailers, the images from the movie, and the novel itself.
The Klimt inspiration reflects Daisy's material world.

“If it wasn’t for the mist we could see your home across the bay," said Gatsby. "You always have a green light that burns at the end of your dock." Daisy put her arm through his abruptly but he seemed absorbed in what he had just said. Possibly it had occurred to him that the colossal significance of that light had now vanished forever. Compared to the great distance that had separated him from Daisy it had seemed very near to him, almost touching her. It had seemed as close as a star to the moon. Now it was again a green light on a dock. His count of enchanted things had diminished by one.”
