Painting stars – satellite painting pt.2

For the background of the satellite painting I’m ready to paint stars. First I’ll start by painting stars plus the glow around them with titanium white. In a later stage I go over the stars with a layer of pure colour. This way you get the stars as clear as possible. In the picture below I did that with still the grain, yellow ochre light (yellow tones) and kraplak (red). ┬áSome nebula’s are painted the same way to intensify the colours.

*Note that all photos are made with a smartphone, that’s why the quality is not superb.
