This is another of the 13 paintings I'll be taking for my I thought I'd share with you the step by step photos so you can see the development of the painting.   This painting was totally inspired by the photo I took during my first evening in St Petersburg, Russia,  see more  on this blog post.


The finished artwork (it is still difficult to capture the transparency of the layers of gold work with a camera).


"First evening in St Petersburg," 2012. Ingrid Lee, Acrylic on canvas, 76.5cm x 61cm.

This painting is one of delight and wonder as the magic and life of this city sparkled before me. I love the technique of using gold paint as a beautiful metallic base for my artwork and I also mix this rich hue with other colours to highlight the energy and light of a subject.
