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 😏

      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. 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!😂
