Another new fan

Here's my latest piece of work, based on the design from the most recent find in my collection of antique fans. A printed central vignette and patterns hand painted in white gouache and silver...
I must admit that the fairly sloppy painting on the original leaf was a challenge to reproduce. Modern metallic colours are generally much too thick to allow any light and carefree brushstrokes (to my great annoyance). 
Anyway, this fan is available in my Etsy shop today! More fans are in the making...  :-)
