Night Rose

First painting of 2019! I experimented with something called Black 2.0 from Culture Hustle, which is super matte and absorbs most of the visible spectrum of light, creating an ultra-dark surface. It's hard to convey the effect this material has in a photograph--you really have to see it in person.  I'm really excited to continue experimenting with it, along with some judiciously placed spot varnish on my watercolors to make things really pop!

Watercolor and Black 2.0 acrylic on cold press paper. 8"x10"

Thank you! It really is--I would recommend that every painter get a bottle to try out, regardless of what your usual medium is.  There is a LOT you can do with it, it's not very expensive, and a little goes a long way. :) (I sound like a commercial now, lol.)
