Galaxies and Beyond
I want to start this post by thanking you guys. Y'all are incredible! I've received so much support over the year from you guys, especially the last couple weeks. Engagement on social media is up up up, and I've gotten so many orders I just don't know what to do with myself! So thank you!
A quick note on social media engagement and then I'll talk about how to make galaxy paintings!

Painting galaxies is one of my favorite things to do, just because of the nature of the painting! Even though I follow the same few steps, every painting is different! I love that so much!
So here's a video I made showing you my process!
Here's a list of supplies I used:
- Washi tape to hold the paper down and keep the paint from being all over the place
- Princeton Round 10 brush
- Canson watercolor paper. This was cut to 5x7.
- Finetec watercolors
- Koi watercolors
- Dr. PH Martins white and black inks
You don't have to use these supplies. I like the washi tape because it's skinny and so I can get small borders. You can use any watercolor paper. My favorite right now is actually Arches paper. And use any watercolor paint you want! The only reason I didn't use the black ink that comes in the Koi set was because I didn't want to use it all up and be left with nothing if I was out painting. I do recommend using the Dr. PH Martins white ink, though, for the stars. It's given me my favorite stars.
This is my first video tutorial, so please comment with any questions you have because I'm positive I left a million things out! And send me photos of the galaxies you paint! I want to seeeeeee!
Love you guys!
I'm sending out a space-filled surprise with every purchase while supplies lasts, so that print you've been thinking of ordering? Do it. Because there will be something extra in it for you! Everyone needs more outer space in their lives!
