In the Presence of Angels

Very nice Andrea, would be great to see it in real life with the metallic inks.

Thank you Carole, yes, it was hard to photograph to do justice to those metallic inks - I even tried scanning the artwork - which turned out to be worse! I used gold splatters on the background of watercoloured blues, with smudges of silver on the impasto acrylic feathers to emphasise shadow where the down appeared thickest. It turned out to be really pretty in the flesh, especially being so very small. I’ve had the idea for months and have only just had the time to paint it! I’m hoping the person I did it for will love it!! Thank you for taking the time to comment Carole :- )

Thanks Andrea for your info, I thought it would be even greater in the flesh :)

Very kind of you Carole and much appreciated too! :- )

Thank you John :- ) Very kind of you to tell me and very much appreciated.
