Just a little impromptu direct painting "night-sky" practice. My aim was to go with some simple shapes, limited colors and high contrast. I'm happy enough with the outcome, although I'll likely make a couple corrections after it is dry. Here are the steps:
1. General design
2. Placing the lightest light
3. Placing the darkest darks
4. Adding additional tones, both light and dark
Final "Night Sky"
