Painting Watercolor Galaxies: How To Create Epic Celestial Scenes

Course Description:

Take your painting to the stars with watercolor galaxies! This technique looks stellar when complete, but it doesn’t require a ton of effort or skill to create the final look. In this course, I’ll show you just how easy it is to create stunning celestial bodies with only a few layers of paint.

I’ll take you through all the supplies you need for creating your own watercolor galaxies before walking you through each step of the painting process. Then we’ll create two projects from start to finish using all the techniques from the lessons. Once you get a feel for this process, you’ll want to start adding these heavenly bodies to your work left and right!

Its easy but entices you to buy more items

I didnt like that i was tempted to buy a certain white paint product that is probably quite pricey and a heat gun, instead of a hairdryer, although she did comment you could use either. I did like that it was relatively easy to understand and well explained.

Magical and Easy

I didn't expect making galaxies to be so easy and with such great results! Even if you are just starting watercolor, this course is easy to follow and gives wonderful but simple projects that give incredible results. Knowing how to paint galaxies makes for great background for any of your projects and give them a beautiful and personal touch!
