Painting Challenge: Night Sky

Patricia Merewether suggested this challenge.  The days are getting shorter, and the nights are getting longer.   So…. let’s

Paint a night sky.      

Include the topic hashtag in your Watercolor – Beginners and Beyond Facebook group post: #nightsky 

Deadline October 7, 2022, 11:59 pm ET

This is a chance to paint galaxy paintings, aurora borealis, all the cool night skies!


What is the prize?   

Our sponsor this week is Dr. Ph Martin’s who has generously contributed Hydrus Liquid Watercolor Set 2.  For more info, click on the product photo.

Dr. Ph. Martin’s Hydrus Fine Art Watercolor is lightfast, transparent, fine art quality watercolor in a glass bottle. This liquid product delivers the same brilliance and permanency as traditional tube watercolors. Made from the finest artist pigments, Dr. Ph. Martin’s Hydrus Fine Art Watercolor can be blended and intermixed while still maintaining the transparency and luminosity of the colors.

Each set comes in a tray that doubles as a mixing palette and bottle holder, with space for a water cup and twelve individual mixing wells. Great for use in technical, calligraphy, fountain pens, and in airbrushes. Each set includes 12 different colors in 1.0 oz (30 ml) glass bottles with droppers and a custom mixing palette.

I use liquid watercolor all the time.  It is awesome!   You can get a completely smooth background.   It is fantastic!

Colors: Hansa Deep Yellow,  Yellow Ochre, Permanent Red, Cobalt Blue, Indian Red, Viridian Green, Burnt Sienna, Alizarin Crimson, Sepia, Payne’s Gray, Payne’s Gray, Sap Green, Burnt Umber.
