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
