SPACED OUT

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.

      1. It’s brilliant. If you haven’t already, I suggest adding your talents to the wonderful group of professionals at Fiverr. My blog features artwork I commissioned from them. I wish I had met you a month ago!!!

      I am glad that you saw this…I love to get carried away with my imagination! Sadly they didn’t allow much of this at schools, the projects were far too restrictive 🙈

  1. My pleasure! Yes, schools are indeed restrictive. There’s hardly anything ‘creative’ at schools. Academics, grades, academics, grades etc..I love art and I’m glad I came across this wonderful blog. Thank you for the follow as well! Your support is much appreciated! Hope you are having a splendid day!

      1. It’s hard to find time, agreed! But I started a new sketch book project for my art, so it’s quick drawings instead. I very recently drew an eye and wrote a poem on it ✨🦋
