Thank you so much for my first painting lesson. I feel quite emotional, mostly because I regret that I didn’t do this decades ago! Well, there’s no time like the present…

It's time to get into gold! Well -gilding; more of a gold foil. This stuff is sooooooo delicate it falls to pieces as you apply it and little flakes of the stuff waft around the studio and get into your tea. But I love it -I love the way it monumentalises the subject. The way it catches the light; the way it lends a Byzantine glory to even a little painting.
