DC: Sky


when Eric offered: Sky
as our DC inspiration
first I went far off into the universe
a sky of dancing planets


then sunset 

the gold spots are masking fluid 
that went bad
it will not rub off
so glad this was not a piece i put a lot of time into
i wanted them to be stars
i suppose i could use white paint on them
but i wanted to share that masking fluid does not always work
i suppose good to test on scrap paper first


because it is spring
a butterfly in flight 
in pink morning light

Thank you for being our host Eric!
Visit Eric's artful place to see who all is creating

  2. Beautiful paintings, the first one is my fave. I have sometimes had problems to remove masking fluid from some sorts of paper, so know what you mean. Have happy day, hugs, Valerie

  9. Oh, the planets, dear Tammie,
    the planets in the sky. Beautiful!
    I can see Jupiter these evenings in the South East arising, surprisingly, orange (first I thought it is Mars) and so near.
    Love,

  10. Wow three lovely sky paintings. I love them. I also love how accidental things like masking fluid disasters give paintings texture and character. :D I've never been successful with masking fluid actually, but then I suppose masking fluid wouldn't really work on 100 year old paper. I usually use white ink or maybe a white gel pen and more the ink around with a brush before the gel sets.

    1. lovely suggestions for white, thank you.
      i thought this time i would use masking fluid. I hear some of them go bad. This was by Daniel Smith, i wrote and asked them, they have not responded yet.

  14. Lovely soft backgrounds. The butterfly looks good against the pink sky.

  15. See, I never would've seen the gold as a problem...to this viewer's eye, they helped represent the magnificent and inherently flawed beauty of our universe and sky.

    Lovely to see what you did with this prompt. I learn so much from all of you. xo
