A surprisingly useful, pearly Iridescent White for mixing. Nature is full of iridescence. It is found in butterflies and birds wings and in the sparkle of water in sunlight and in the rays of the sun itself. Man-made objects too are rich in the kind of sparkle created by Matisse Iridescent White and Iridescent Medium. Metals, glass, and plastics can be better revealed in paintings using this pigment but it is worth experimenting in all sorts of situations in the landscape – the sparkle in water in a fountain, the reflections from windows, salty spray at the seaside, rain caught in the lights of cars and streetlights. The creative possibilities are endless.
