Space Paintings

I like space, I love science fiction and I have a fascination for the photographs that come from the Hubble Space Telescope and NASA. They have the ability to inspire me to paint these ‘starscapes’ and wonder at the beauty of the universe around us.

These I have created using the new(ish) iridescent pastels from Sennelier and Pan Pastels. They honestly sparkle in light.
