At it again with the gold leaf! I'm just smitten by the way the payne's grey contrasts with the gold. This one is on the smaller side, 5.5 x 8.5". It's hard to tell, but a lot of her freckles are gold leaf, too.

That is a stunning work of art!
You are very talented.
And I agree that the gold leaf goes great with the grey.

 Oooh. Very beautiful. The gold leaf almost gives her a futuristic, android-like quality with the bald head.
