This piece of art is a continuation in my experiment with my three new Winsor and Newton paints. I’ve used just two colours this time, Alizarin Crimson and Cadmium Yellow.
I wanted to achieve a gradual shift in tone, and I made this happen by painting onto wet paper using a blended orange paint I mixed, to which I gradually added more red. This is a small art work and the shift in colour is quite subtle, especially in the photograph, but it is there.
Once the paint had fully dried, I applied some gold leaf.
Initial feedback to this work has been really encouraging, and I am going to make a series of pieces using different colour shifts and different gold leaf applications. For the first time I will also be inviting people to commission their own versions of this work. You will be able to choose the colours, and the gold leaf shape, and the size of the finished work.
This piece of art is sold.
