Painting: Acrylic, Oil, Gold Leaf on Canvas.
The painting technique I've used here resembles the Flemish method of layering thin veneers of paint between layers of varnish. I start with pencils, pastels, and varnish. After that, I paint a lighter layer with acrylics and finish with a couple of thicker layers using a combination of mediums, often acrylics and oils, but sometimes gold leaf and inks.
This is one of my "loss of innocence" paintings, part of a series that I have been working on since the beginning of 2017. In the "Milk" Series, I have allowed myself to explore themes that normally touch upon sensitive for me topics such as girlhood vs womanhood seen as a dichotomy, the cult of innocence, and similar.
