Painting Van Gogh On Water

In this video Turkish artist, Garip Ay, recreates Van Gogh’s Starry Night using Ebru art. Ebru, or decorative paper art, is one of the oldest Turkish arts; it is described as painting on water. The artist sprinkles and brushes color onto a pan of oily water and the created pattern/picture is then transferred to paper. I have always been a fan of Van Gogh and Starry Night in particular so I enjoyed seeing this painting come to life on water.
