Blue Sky

I finished off gilding the last of the panels, creating some additional pieces for the large version. I can’t wait to rehang the large version at the Brand Gallery, I think these small additions will make a big difference. So, Amelia’s back in action as I wait for the gold leaf to really get dry. I added a layer of Prussian Blue over the sky, taking care of the edges of the orb so that the ragged flared edge of the disc have a lovely blue hue to them as they emerge. She’s almost finished now. I must get to her feet and drop back the orb a little – it’s still too bright. I love that Prussian Blue, it’s so transparent and bright at the low end of its range, and almost completely black at it’s dense end. Wonderful stuff!
