White Lily Watercolor #6

With the painting finished and dry I decided to try something new.  I bought this new medium, “Windsor Newton, Iridescent Medium”. I have been dying to see how it works.

I applied it to the lily and got really no affects. Darn. Sooooo. Instead I tried it on the background and “Wa la!” a shimmering glow just like the light from the window. Yay! Now I know it doesn’t work so good on light areas but it does show on darker surfaces. You have to have the light on it just right to see the shine but it is really cool! Here it is angled just right and still wet.
