Well my new painting is of an Angel, I had loads of fun adding layer upon layer to the background and finishing off with gold leaf.

Sadly while painting this piece none of the Angelic goodness rubbed off on me, better luck next time I guess! ๐Ÿ™‚





size is 30x40cm

    Hi Kelly, thank you for liking my last few paintings. Didn’t know how to just send a message to say that so I figured why not put it on your blog. I pretty much like all of your work. Your style is awesome, so handmade and attractive. You’re a great artist. So thanks again.


    • Thank you so much RJ, I really appreciate your wonderful comments :), and you are most welcome I thought your last few paintings were wonderful. I really loved the black and white palette. Very striking, I look forward to seeing more of your work.

  10. beautiful, I love this one Kelly! โ™ฅ

  11. Kelly, I love this piece. It might be my fave of yours. Painting with gold is probably my favourite thing to do when creating – I think it’s the influence of Klimt on me or something but every time I paint with gold or come across a painting that uses gold I light right up! Beautiful work.

    • Hi Ginger, I’m so happy to find a familiar face also taking Kelly Rae’s course ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you so much for your lovely comments.
      It’s nice to find another fan of gold (and Klimt), I find I don’t use it nearly as much as I use to.
      Hows the painting going?? I can’t wait to see more of your work! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. I love goldleaf! But don’t know how to use it!

    • Yeah it’s really fun to use, and is really easy as well, you just have to apply a layer of gold size(similar to a watery glue) to the area you want to add the gold leaf, leave for 15min or so and then apply your gold leaf and then Ta Da a gold covered painting!! ๐Ÿ™‚
