canvas, artificial gold leaf, acrylic, oil
18. x 12. cm
This was a painting that flowed off my brush. I used gold leaf for the circle of leaves that are framed by the tower of St, Leonard's church and then they were painted with the same colours as the other leaves. What you can not see in the photo is that they glow against the darkness of the tower. Painting over gold leaf means that there is more light being reflected back through the paint. I like it.
