The Last Judgement

The Last Judgement.  Watercolor and gold leaf on paper.  It measures 7″x7″.  The Latin translation is, “The stars incline us they don’t oblige us”.  I am always so surprised when the gold leaf is photographed and it turns out looking black when in reality is it so shiny.  The first letters “A” and the stars and moon are 23K gold leaf.  I used to scan the paintings before the gold leaf and I might need to go back to doing just that in the future.
