By the Light of the Silvery Moon

Artwork-Miya Gouache & Van Gogh Interference Watercolor in a Saint Armand Canal Pad.

Saint Armand paper is rag paper made of leftovers from the fabric industry. Their paper in the Canal Pad isn’t necessarily formulated for watercolor. I haven’t tried it with watercolor yet because I’m playing with gouache at the moment (which, yes, it actually is watercolor too, but made a bit differently).

Since I’ve also been playing around with black paper, I decided I would use one of the black pages in the pad. I was very pleased with the way the gouache handled. A touch of interference white watercolor over the gouache white gave my moon an extremely silvery look.

  1. I like how you experiment and play with all these materials! The effect of the interference white does give a shimmery and mysterious feel to the painting. Love it!
