Natasha. A funky pencil portrait with the addition of gold and silver leaf. I have never gilded on paper before, this was on heavy watercolour paper. Framed portrait in situ.
Latest commission, Gilded Tiger. 100 x 100 cm I textured the canvas first of all, then applied the gold. Drew out the tiger and painted it in black acrylic. Finishing it off with varnish. Packing it up well then and off to England it goes!
