Daily Art Devotions: Day 26

For Day 26/40 of #DailyArtDevotions #artjournal journey with Elizabeth Foley, I decided to create my night sky representation using watercolor and Bombay inks. I really love how it turned out.

Something I learned in Tamara Laporte’s Creativity and Wellbeing Summit with Lucy Brydon is to put two layers of watercolor on the page to make the colors more vibrant. I also learned from Lucy how to make the galaxy stars using white ink and a toothbrush.

Something else I added for effect was salt, and I also used a dryer to move the watercolors around on the page. Then I put watercolors on a mop brush and slung them across the page. I will be doing a lot more of these. The effect is beautiful.
