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)
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 .

This is a loose sketch for a painting looking from Chippendale Beach - actually its two drawings pasted next to each other
