Van Gogh’s Starry Night painted on water with ancient technique

The Dutch impressionist Vincent Van Gogh painted The Starry Night in 1889, depicting the view from the asylum where he stayed in France. While the original is an oil painting on canvas, this recreation is painted on water.

Paper marbling, as the technique is called, is also referred to as Turkish marbling. The method has been around for hundreds of years, and originates from the Middle East and Far East.

In Turkey, where it’s called ebru, the art form continues to be popular to this day. Each work created with this technique will be unique, and it takes an incredible amount of skill.
