Night Skies

Experimenting with ways to paint the “Milky Way” in watercolour.
Salt is the best, fine table salt gives small pale marks which could be seen as stars as they have jagged edges. Maldon Sea Salt however is perhaps more suited to large starbursts.
Fenugreek made some interesting alien space ship shapes but smelt awful and fine-ground polenta just made a mess!

  1. Thanks Phil! – I feel I should already know these techniques but it’s fun and rewarding to try them out when not under pressure, just because it’s fascinating. I am planning though, an ambitious night scene at Half Dome. Hoping to get time this weekend to make some real progress.
