A simple design. Regular visitors to the blog will recognise the various elements which make up this image. I enjoy blending watercolour from one shade to another, it works really well as a background for a strong design. Th leaf is a shape I regularly doodle, and the gold leaf, whilst being a pain to work with, is one of my favourite materials to look at. Once everything was dry, I sprayed a coat of varnish on top to protect the metal.
This design sold very quickly, and I’ve already been asked to make another. I may well add that second one to the blog post once it is complete.
