I paint with acrylics on watercolor paper, using the process of layering the paint and scratching back to reveal unique colors and textures in my paintings.
Neptune - In keeping with the idea of outer space that I started with in the prior painting, I decided this time to paint a planet using cooler colors. I chose Neptune because of it's blue green color. Neptune is the eighth planet from the sun and is one of the gas giants which has no solid surface, instead the gas transitions into slushy ice and water. Neptune is named for the god of sea because of it's blue color. I wanted Neptune to stand out but still have a lot of action going on around it which I think I succeeded in doing. The serpentine lines are fun as that brought to my mind dragons passing by.
