Planets and Quasars for the Record Crate



I've painting an outer space montage on the roof at the Record Crate

Here's the finished painting. 


Galaxies and quasars



Thanks to the wonderful Grace Woods for her help. She painted a lot of the ground, as well as the individual stars

Pictures from its creation follow below





No quasars yet, but those flaring lights stand in for now





Spaceground at the Record Crate ;)
Sorry about the crappy photo. I may get a  better one before I paint it over



spacy! the test painting


a rough layout, though I forgot about the deathstar-like fitting at one end.

As it's a ceiling, if you're standing under, bottom of image is in front

  

the most recent version of the test



This is the beginning of a test painting - the grey for the colour of the existing paint job, and the red to see if the ground needs underpainting, and maybe it does(bummer)

Two nudes


Neither painting is finished yet, I'll post updates when I have done some more,


and there's a bit of a cast to the colour, the photos taken in very blue afternoon shadow, and then corrected to some degree .

Some more of these paintings are here and here
