Watercolour Night Sky Painting Video

I created a video showing a technique using watercolour paints. These are so much fun to do and you really don’t need much to create them.
Video can be found
HERE

Completed piece.



Materials needed:
Watercolour paper
Large brush
Very large brush(as big as a pastry brush)
Some watercolours
Two jars of water only partially filled
One for cleaning and the other for splatting and the initial layer on the paper

I would google nebulas and look at all the images. NASA has a great site, Hubble Space Telescope  photos

You could look at some famous artist paintings of the night sky. Discuss the artworks and reflect upon the time in which they were created. Discuss aspects such as colour, light, paint style and subjects. Compare these paintings.

The most well known being Vincent Van Gogh’s The Starry Night.
Painted in oil on canvas in 1889.




Starry Night
Painted in 1893 using oil on canvas.





And Starry Sky, Attempt
Painted by Wenzel Hablik in 1909.






I would be wary using a hair dryer with little ones, but an adult could help with this part of the process.

You could extend this and the child could create different mediums to create night skies.
They could create 3D pieces using the techniques used.
These images look beautiful framed.
