"Gold Leaf" SUNSET


GRIGGS SUNSET

I have always been fascinated by the use of gold leaf in painting.  I love the effect it gives to the work and have used it successfully in the past.  This painting has gold leaf in both the sunset and the water.
It's very hard to tell from the photo that there is gold leaf on this, but looking at it from various angles does the trick.  The inspiration for this piece is from a photo I took during a sunset near Griggs Reservoir.
Enjoy
