Other than promoting the thing I think the Shopify store has stopped dominating my time at last. Started this today. Left, acrylic base colours. Right, first layers of oil [base colours again], some gold leaf [not that you can tell from this shot] and textural scratches. This has to build up until the gold leaf is the thinnest of lines showing through a crack in the surface.
Some [possibly] random postings to remind myself what I've been doing.
