#’s 142-148, Painted during the Georgia Color Plein Air Invitational 4-day paint out.
I painted cards to experiment with gold leaf. It was fun, but am not sure whether I’d use it in a regular landscape painting as I found it unpredictable (tiny stars, fire sparks… maybe?). Depending on the viewer’s angle of available light, the gold is dark or light, altering the composition.
