Another piece from my Gold Leaf Ballerina Series of paintings
Stardust is a multi media artwork piece using oils, Gold Leaf, Copper Leaf and Silver Leaf in the artwork.
The Gold Leaf forms the main body of the dress and wrap around top and shoes, with the Copper Leaf used for the low lights and the Silver Leaf for the highlights.
A semi abstract background in earth tones, anchors the piece to the canvas and yet allows her to be propelled to new heights.
The model is Jade Wallace a professional ballerina. Jade and I have now worked together on a number of pieces, and she is a delight to paint, as she is able to attain beautiful dynamic shapes for my artwork.
The images I have uploaded really do not do this stunning artwork justice, as it catches any amount of light, no matter how small, and reflects it beautifully off the guilded surface.
I have attempted to display this by taking a number of images in different positions and different light levels.
The gold, silver and copper combine beautifully on the piece to give a shimmering depth to the dress, which will grace any living space.
To show part of the process, I have added a progress image which shows the red underpainting where the metallic leaf will sit, which gives the finished result more depth to the colour.
This piece is painted in oils on a 50cm x 70cm (approx 20" x 28"), stretched box canvas, with painted sides, so no need to add a frame, but of course if you wanted to you still can.
PLUS the piece is already strung on the back, so you just need to decide where you would like to hang this stunning artwork, to grace your home.
Each piece is shipped with a signed certificate of authenticity, and valuation certificate.
If import duties are charged, these would be the responsibility of the buyer, as unfortunately I have no control over this aspect
