I wanted to try a new colour palette out of my comfort zone. This canvas has been primed in many layers of colour with sand and collage added. I firstly painted in a beautiful deep paynes grey, with the second layer an earthy yellow ochre, then adding collage. Finishing with another layer of paynes grey mixed with white and an inky Prussian blue. Gold leaf is added in small areas, so that the work shines and shimmers in candlelight.
