Oil and gold leaf on canvas. Finished with Art Spectrum Damar Varnish.

Description

2018. 90x90cm. Oil and gold leaf on canvas. Finished with Art Spectrum Damar Varnish.

I was listening to one of my faves - 'Think of me' from Phantom of the Opera - when I sketched out this piece. I guess the beautiful flow of the music inspired this flowy hairstyle as she dreams about her love.

To get the full shine and warmth of the gold leaf, it is best to display the painting in yellow/warm light but not in direct sunlight as it may begin to tarnish. Gold leaf is highly reflective and will reflect the colours in the room.
