Artist's description:

This is the 6th Golden Looker painting in a series of original female portraits.
The first was a prototype for custom painting commissions for my other shop.
This painting was painted from a 18th century portrait of Doña MIcaela Esquibel by an anonomous Mexican painter in 1780.
Its mysterious gaze will add a beautiful glow to an intimate corner of your home.

- I painted a fragment of a portrait face within the perfectly round space on the canvas.
- Once the painting is dried I apply yellow ochre to the area all around.
- Once dry I then apply gilding glue.
- Afterward about 5 minutes I apply faux gold leaf to the area.
- Once dried, the excess golden leaf is removed with a soft brush. I then apply at least 6 layers of laquer that I've prepared in my studio. This serves as a sealer and protects the surface from scratching. It also gives the canvas a nice thick stratus of luminosity.

Please contact me with your questions, I always reply promptly.

After purchasing, I will creat a 1-2 minute video for you explaining a little bit more about this unique painting.
