On a gold-painted background, the assembled image of actual gold-leaf is coloured blue – to "reverse" this to a sunset sky.
The pink blur stretched across the bottom and top are from photographs of actual clouds at sunset.
The gold background is a photograph of an old traditional screen, with shaded and brightened highlights to make the sun's rays.
Details include a kite flyer (photographed at new year in Chiba), a kingfisher (which I photographed on my local river in Chofu) and a light plane (also flying above Chofu).
