So these are the worst procedural photos ever. I did the last bit really fast and didn’t want to stop. I might set up a camera next time and do a timelapse if I have the patience to do it in one sitting.
I sketch out the basic shape with a really watered down white. Then lay down some deeper base colours (you can see the purple) then I keep building it up with brighter, less diluted colours.
I use a dry brush after a few strokes to soften the edges. It also makes the cloud look more naturally random.
A few sprays of blue and some stars dotted around.
Not unhappy with it.

Do you paint with other mediums besides acrylic on Canvas?
I’ve tried oils before but they’re not very forgiving and I’m not terribly confident. Also used watercolours for landscapes but they’re not right for most space painting. I’m going back to college this year to do art foundation so hopefully I’ll get stretched a bit and learn new things.
