Nebulae. 1.

I've been painting a lot recently - I had my final a level art exam yesterday.
Just thought I'd post some of the prep stuff I've been doing. All oil paints- s o o fun!
The theme was 'exploration and discovery' - I was looking at space!
"The Phoenix Nebula"
Might look more like clouds, but I love this one... so pretty!

"The Eagle Nebula"

  1. You know, even though I love your final Nebula portrait, I think my favorite Nebula painting is the Eagle Nebula. Gorgeous colors, nice contrast. It's just so fun to look at. :D

  2. I'm a fan of your final self-portait nebula painting, but I have to admit that one of my favorite nebula paintings that you've done is the Eagle Nebula. It has good contrast, fun colors, and it seems so otherwordly. :)

  3. Thank you! I love the Eagle Nebula- the NASA photographs are just spectacular! :) And I agree with you on the colours, it's unbelievable how varied the nebulae are...! (I love the background image on your blog btw! Superb photo!)
