Unique properties make Lunar Black, a transparent, full value range pigment with granulating particles that attract and repel each other. When it dries, a Lunar Black wash looks like a marbled moonscape. Mottled, granite like texture is fun to achieve and unpredictable. Lunar Black can be successfully glazed. Lunar Black combines beautifully with all your favorites. It is an inorganic neutral black and unique to Daniel Smith.
I chose this image to paint with Lunar Black knowing how it paints rocks almost by itself, if you can let it do what it wants to do and walk away instead of reworking and overworking.
“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
