Palimpsest Ink Drawing is the art of superimposed ink layers.
Elena Shkvarkina developed this technique searching for an art practice that would allow experimentation beyond traditional art aesthetics, and encourage self-expression regardless of skills or prior painting experience.
Thanks to its experimental nature, Palimpsest Ink Drawing welcomes improvisation and miss-marking. The layered application creates a memoir of your drawing where you can see previous layers emerging through those more recent.
During this workshop, you’ll be introduced to the technique and its various applications in jewellery illustration. Elena will guide you to challenge your creative thinking and will show you ways how this artistic expression can enhance your practice as a jeweller.
