Painting on water…

How is painting on water even possible??

I had seen a few videos of this process but this particular video really had me glued to my screen for a few minutes (it’s not very long!)…

This painting on water is created by Turkish artist Garip Ay who ”reproduces” here (with what seems like just a few simple strokes) the famous painting by Van Gogh “Starry Night”.

I did not know what to expect when I first saw the video but as I held my breath in anticipation of what could happen, I started getting chills as soon as the music started… Then I watched, mesmerised, to see how a painting could possibly unfold…

And I was NOT disappointed!! Please check it out below and if you’d like to find out more about Garip and about painting on water, check out his website:

I hope you will have stars in your eyes by the end of it, just like I did 😉
