Great mcmtanyel 2014-01-01 16:08

Hello Ourania,
I did not realize you were into Turkish art, LOL! This is what Wikipedia says about ebru:
"Ebru is a traditional Islamic and Turkish painting art, and can be defined as painting on water and transferring this painting onto paper. This style is also called marbling.
A gum called tragacanth is added to the water to yield a thickened liquid, and horse hair brushes are used to apply paints which are insoluble in water."
This reminds me so much of ebru.
Excellent colors, a brilliant photo!

Hello dear Murat,
thank you very much for this lovely compliment! I checked out about this art in Wikipedia after reading your comment. Ebru is a fascinating art and it's challenging to try to produce similar results through photography.
All the best, have a wonderful year,
