The Pink Milky Way

The Pink Milky Way

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw some of the behind the scenes on my stories (that i so adore sharing) of this painting. It’s almost 3 years since i painted our blue bedroom painting, and I’ve been over it the past two years already. It was so exciting to finally create something new and at such a large scale. So last week, i took about an hour for myself to just put on a white shirt and make a big mess in our studio. Too much fun.

The concept behind this one was to create some sort of a milky way / galaxy, or even perhaps an aerial photo of a very cute Mars. This picture, is only a shot of 1/10 of the painting. And although i can’t say i love all the parts of it, overall it gives me the mood that i so adore. Warm tones, movement and a big of magic (with gold and bronze touches).

To be quite frank, i had to filter this shot in order to bring out some colors from my iPhone capture. In real life, the red is a nice rusty colour, so it’s not as aggressive as it looks here. But for the sake of the post, i loved this drama. Will be sharing the final result on Insta as we hang the canvas this week. It only took 3 days to dry!!
