So here is my version.
I started with my background, stamping with random bits and pieces using opaque FRESCO PAINT..
I then added my first layer of circles, and painted around them using translucent paint. I also added some drips using acrylic ink.
More circles and another layer of paint.
and again more circles, and yet more paint, you can see each layer gets a little darker.
I then added shading around the circles with charcoal..
and this is how I ended the session..I added small white dots around the planets.. You know me and my love of dots..
I knew I wanted to add something else, but I couldn't think what... so I left it for a week and then went back to it..
I sketched out a spaceman's helmet..
then I painted the helmet, adding a reflection of the planets into his visor..
I glued this into the book..
I then printed out a quote..
and the whole page is finished..
