Yesterday’s over painting continued.

Yesterday I ended my painting at this stage. 😊

I saved it to my screen saver and when I got up in the night and picked up my iPad and the first thing I saw was this! 😳

How cool was that 😁 Well I was impressed but then it doesn’t take much to impress me 🤷🏼‍♀️  I realised that something wasn’t right but what was it.!

I decided that I wanted to reduce the size of the moon which I did. It still didn’t look right  so I painted the moon out completely! 😳 Gasp!

I had been watching you tube for night sky paintings and decided to try painting a galaxy effect.  Sorry there is no photo of the moon removal but I was beginning to panic, this believe it or not is a good sign, it excites me because I know I’m near to creating something special

Hmm 🤔 nothing special here……. further panicking


I added stars I added planets then stood back and what did I see? A damn great fish 🐟 omg that original fish painting haunts me. Back to performing planet/moon removals 🤷🏼‍♀️

I added yet more stars after realising that if I held my brush a certain way it sprayed the painting and not me! However it did spray my man who looked like he had a bad case of dandruff and his jumper. 🙄 ( the man in the painting, not John my husband)

So moon moved and the previous planets were covered over. ✔️

I then decided to paint the cave in a bit more which made the perfect spot for my lucky black cat!

That’s it, all done, this is actually one that looks better in real life 😉 I hope you have enjoyed watching my mistakes and corrections 😏Elaine x


      1. No worries 🙂 I was sick… the kids were sick and then we somehow decided to take vacation, which required me to not only get caught up but also get done 2 weeks ahead of time. We went on vacation for 3 weeks and only returned so I could get sick again. Alas, life is never easy but I am so grateful that I was able to enjoy my time away. So glad to be back and to get back in touch with everyone 🙂

  1. I’m gonna repeat myself here, but I have to say I love your style.
    The sky with stars and planets and the boy/man remind me of my favourite novel, The Little Prince. So pretty 🙂

  2. Wow! It’s a completely different painting than the original! I liked the original and I like this one too. Those middle of the night inspirations work for you. I just roll over and hope to sleep!😂

  3. Yes, I like the direction this has taken, Elaine. And your observers looking out into the Universe just adds to the piece… fabulous! You did make me laugh when you sprayed your man! Hehehe! 😀

        1. I am putting my faith in my angel numbers. I’ve just opened an Etsy account to sell some prints under the name of Rose Elaine paintings. 😳 not sure if I am asking too much for a print 🤷🏼‍♀️
