Jessica Zoob gold oil paints

I have recently been working with gold oil paints. I love the shimmering, iridescent effect this metallic oil brings to my canvases, adding a glimmering magic to the jewel colours.

My Playing With Gold Pinterest Board is the perfect place to bookmark my discoveries and colour inspiration from; nature, textures, distressed walls, decaying doors, worn out fabrics, abandoned buildings and rusty old locks and key holes.

My works are directly inspired by this blue iguana skin and decaying gunnera manicata leaves after the frozen winter.

Dulux has announced ‘Cherished Gold’ as its Colour of the Year for 2016.  Gold is a big interior trend right now. It offers a timeless glamour and when paired with blues and pinks can transform a room. Whether you want a space to be rich and dramatic or install a calm sophistication gold, without doubt, makes an elegant statement.

How to use it though? Here’s some gold interior inspiration:

Am a bit excited about gold!

Lots of love, Jessica
