For my second art post, I wanted this to be a scenic piece, capturing a “dreamy” intergalactic theme. Most importantly, I envisioned it to incorporate my love for the starry night sky and planets in outer Space.
The art explained: The butterfly represents the “lens” to seeing another planet (in this case, I went with the appearance of Mars; sandy dunes and clouds of sand-dust with the moon providing brightness in the dark, star-lit sky). I felt that by leaving the final piece in black and white only, this best captured the detailing and illusion of a night sky, in addition to providing an excellent contrast.
This is a canvass piece sketched in HB pencil and bought to life by detailing and outlining using fine-liner pens. Intricacy is paramount in this piece!
This is perfectly placed in a bedroom, hanging above the bed for the ultimate night time visions.
