Gold Leaf Mahi
12 x 24 x .75 Inches
Oil On Canvas
By Amanda Johnson
This beautiful Mahi was painted over an underlayer of gold leaf that is applied by hand in the preliminary stages of the painting, then it is worked over with thick oil paint using a palette knife which is used to sculpt to perfection the details that capture the expression of the fish. The gold leaf changes reflection in relation to the light.
Finally, it is finished using splatters of paint which jump off the canvas in contrast with the vibrant blue water and brightly colored yellow-green of the mahi, aka dolphin fish. All prices include sales tax and shipping in the continental USA.
