There's lots of room to play around with this image; i'm hoping to get a second (and much larger) one done, and i'll be digging out the old gold leaf for that one.
So I won't expect it to be done in a hurry.
Anyhoo i'll leave you with the finished piece and also a few progress shots, taken at random intervals to hopefully try and show my particular working habits.
Which, quite frankly, are obscure and unstructured, as I tend to leap about a piece blindly with only a vague idea of where i'm heading.(Even the rare occasions when I do know what I want it to be, it tends to disregard my wishes, turning out just as it pleases. I swear it's the brush controlling me, not the other way round..)
