Mixed Media - Watercolor With Gold Leaf, Mixed Media
My watercolor of a Lady Slipper Orchid has a Gold Leaf background. I apply the leaf to my watercolor paper. It is painted with the pigments used in the watercolor and builds up a toned down, distressed, aged appearance. Although, prints will not have the sheen that is picked up in the original it does give the textured look that I love with this technique.
