A Dream of Japan


Egg tempera and gold leaf on oak

30cm x 25cm x 1cm

In this painting, a thin layer of white paint is laid over gold leaf to create a perlescent effect along the fish's belly and at the tips of the tail. The paint has been scratched through to reveal the gold beneath around each scale, making a stylised pattern along the back.
