This was a fun one! I've experimented in the past using gold leaf with pastels. It's challenging because the leaf has to be strategically placed since pastels won't adhere to it. I wondered how the oils would respond. Beautifully! You can leave as much of the leaf exposed as you want...or paint right over it! Perfect. I'll surely be doing more of this. It doesn't scan well, so you'll have to take my word for it...the gold leaf shines!
This detail might show it a bit better.
