Day 8 - High Heeled Shoe SOLD

10 x 10 inches, oil and mixed media on panel

For this background I built up several alternating layers of pale cream tissue paper and gold leaf. The tissue paper, when glued and stained brown, becomes somewhat transparent and allows a clouded reflective sheen to bounce up from the gold leaf beneath. It also makes a nice texture with creases for the brown stain to collect in.
