Acomplishment of Arms Commission

I was commissioned to do an Accomplishment of Arms for my friend Mistress BelAnna de Rouge de Anjou, she is originally from the East but now lives in Calontir. I was crazy and decided to do all her gold in leaf! The scan does not do it justice but in person it is very spiffy! This is 8 1/2 x 11 on Velum (skin not paper), Acrylic, Watercolor (ProWhite), gold leaf. The white stands out much better on the original, the scan made the velum whiter than it was. I am showing the process of this piece just so some of you can see some of how I work. I was going to do the leafing first but decided the color would help me get sharper edges if I did it first.
