#4 – Top of the World
Original Work By Jeff Dillon
The moon appears so bright, as though a window has opened up to shine a beam of light on the scene below. This piece was completed earlier in my art career, and this is demonstrated through the restrained use of linework. Despite this, the piece offers ample detail in the mountainous and watery forms in the midground. The luminous sky above is lit with a milky glow courtesy of the large moon. The deep midnight blue sky is completed in prussian blue and highlighted with titanium white. The rolling terrain is layered in chromium oxide green and paynes grey.

Jeff Dillon the Canadian Artist, inspired by the bold colours and brush strokes of Post-Impressionist Artists. His unique style focuses on capturing light, not through the detail of realism, but with gesture, illusion, shape and colour. He offers a personal and distinctive style to the world through his bold use of colours and lines, often symbolic images or subject matter. Objects in the paintings retain their realistic appearance yet have a vibrancy and fluidity about them, unique to his work. Jeff Dillon’s new expression of Post-Impressionism is both beloved and revered in the Canadian and Global Contemporary Art World.
