Australian Ghost Gum | Matisse Acrylic Paint

Origins and Landscape Harmony


Australian Ghost Gum, initially designed to capture the soft whites of the ethereal trees prevalent in Australia's semi-arid regions, has become a favourite among landscape artists. Its introduction aimed to mirror the muted whites inherent in the trunks of these ghostly trees, seamlessly aligning with the subdued colour palette of natural landscapes. Nature's hues, even in their lightest shades, possess a subtle, muted quality, mirroring the nuanced character of Australian Ghost Gum.


Versatility Beyond Landscapes


Beyond its landscape-oriented name, Matisse Australian Ghost Gum extends its influence into various painting genres, proving to be an ideal off-white mixing companion. Its subdued ochre-based character offers a versatile canvas for artists working across different styles, from portraiture and figure painting to abstract compositions. The colour's soft quality makes it well-suited for crafting nuanced skin tones, while its adaptability extends effortlessly to the realm of painting flowers and fabrics.


Opaque and Permanent: Enduring Excellence


Australian Ghost Gum distinguishes itself with its opaque nature, providing artists with a reliable and consistent medium for their creative endeavours. This opacity ensures that the colour maintains its integrity, whether applied as a standalone or incorporated into complex mixtures. Furthermore, the permanence of Australian Ghost Gum ensures that the artistic expressions it contributes to will endure, unaffected by the passage of time.
