Seems like I'm using a lot more gold leaf lately. I guess I was tired and too lazy with the process there for a while but now I'm back to it. It takes an extra bit of balance when painting. The gold leaf has such a brightness it's like putting your composition in front of a bright window. -It takes a bit of fineness to make it not seem to dark and back lit. (think of taking a portrait photo in front of a bright window)
These bottom two pieces are recent commission pieces that were both easy and fun.
