Time for the third in my Skyscape Baubles series! I’m having fun painting these, as well as finding them nice and relaxing after a day of stressing over research-related stuff.
The third in my Skyscape Baubles series is Starry Mountains. I’ve seen the starry sky motif on a few different things lately, from leggings to pencil cases, and after randomly browsing various photos of different coloured nebulae, I thought the subtle and beautiful colours would lend themselves well to watercolours. I also thought the pale blues and dark greys of a mountain would suit the deep blue-black of the night sky. The small stars were painted by splattering white gouache, with the larger ones having more detail added with a fine brush.
