A watercolor Galaxy

The prompt from an art challenge on my instagram feed stated – Blues, Purples and Violets and I thought how about a “Galaxy”!

So here’s the final product! I usually don’t paint these (maybe they seem a little daunting) but this time I wanted to try something new – to get out of my comfort zone. I tried several techniques before settling for one where I started with some empty white space in the sky gradually adding colors around the space and creating some drama to the sky! The best part was using the Winsor and Newton art masking fluid (for the first time) to create the starry sky and the crescent moon.

Stay safe and have a great day!!
