Ocean Alchemy in Gold

Alchemy: the medieval forerunner of chemistry, concerned with the transmutation of matter, in particular with attempts to convert base metals into gold or find a universal elixir. Wikipedia/bing

It's taken me four years to develop this beautiful signature mixed media technique that captures the textures and colours of the ocean combined with natural abstract compositions.

This nine step process involves loose pigments, inks, watercolours, acrylics and gold leaf in layers which creates a double chromatic effect.

Combining gold leaf line inspired by my love of the Japanese art of Kintsugi; creating beauty in brokeness.
