Metallic Watercolor Paint ~ Fun!

This little ACEO original watercolor and ink painting is called "Little Red Bird by Moonlight".

I like the look of metallic watercolor paint when just a little hint of it is added to a painting. There is metallic watercolor paint in several places on this painting.















The little red bird is painted in metallic paint. There is also a little more metallic paint on the branches and on the nest.















...and, the silvery moon is painted with metallic paint...

















Fun! The metallic paint is opaque like gouache and I like the way that the transparent watercolor contrasts with the opacity of the metallic paints.

Just had to share the fun I have with metallic paint =)

God bless,


Kathy
