This botanical oil painting is on sturdy cradled wooden panel. I painted it from life (some faux magnolias that I have), but the color choices are my own.
The gold in this piece is luminescent, made from walnut oil mixed with fine mica powder. Because of the reflective quality, the tone of the piece changes with the light throughout the day.
Finished with a gloss retouch varnish to protect the paint, give it an even sheen, and bring out the colors and details.
Background color wraps around edges.
