Sea Turtle Shimmer

The second in my series of sea turtles painted in a new way for me. I first covered the canvas with gold leaf metal, then I applied glazes with oil paint and walnut oil. Working this way with having the entire surface covered in gold certainly affects the oil glazes, giving it a shimmering effect. Finished work is 11 x 14 inches.
