Croissants et Brioches

And this is the completed painting previously shown in the last blog post. It took a multitude of layers to create the effect I was after to get the proper reflection. I have included the first stage of the painting to show some of these layers. The gold leaf, after application, must be glazed many times to create depth. It will be part of the Paris Exhibition I am currently working on.

‘Croissants et Brioches’, acrylic and 22k gold leaf on gesso board.
