Copper and gold leaf on 'By Your Side'

'By Your Side' features a blue tabby with gittering gold leaf eyes next to a fluffy gold kitten. It has a luxurious background of resin-coated copper leaf.

Copper leaf turns out to be a bit trickier to work with than gold leaf - it seems harder to transfer from the wax paper onto the canvas. But the effect is stunning, and I particularly like the contrast against blue colours, like in this painting. I have coated this with clear resin too for an extra tactile and glossy effect.

Painted on 6x4" canvas in 2016; signed, varnished and unframed. Can be hung framed or unframed, or stood on a surface. A dedication on the reverse can be provided at your request.
