“The Milky Way Reflected the River Bed”
2022

Light, reflection and space created by using gold leaf and pigments all formed on planet earth.  My intention is to bring more light to a period in time where we all need it. These are interior mind landscapes.

The paintings and drawings are made using handmade materials. Egg tempera made with earth pigments, oak gall ink, and sumi ink sticks are just a few of the materials used to create these works on gold and silver leaf.

Graffito
Jill London

Sgraffito is an intricate design or line drawing, which is drawn into the dried egg tempera paint surface, revealing the water gilded surface underneath. The gilded surface is painted with a hand made egg tempera paint and once it dries, patterns are scraped and drawn into the surface allowing the gilded surface to show through. Fabulous effects are created which give another dimension and detail to a gilded surface.

Often this technique was used in Renaissance panel painting. This is a great technique to use on reproduction frames and furniture as well as on fine art. The variables are endless with these mediums and students are encouraged to think outside of the box.
