One of my most favorite subjects to paint are nebulas. I love their color variety and shocking etheral quality. You never know what a nebula will look like–anything is possible. They bring my imagination to life and inspire me like nothing else.
I thought for “N” I’d share a couple nebulas I painted recently:
Both are done on Yupo (hot pressed paper). I love using watercolor for these because I can’t control it. (If I want to be able to control the paint and mimic a particular nebula, I stick with acrylic.) Oh, I might be able to direct the paint a bit and choose the colors, but I never know what the end result will be. Just like an actual nebula.
