About Course

In this course we have created a composition to explore dreams and celestials bodies. I will take you through the step-by-step process of creating this artwork either using already constructed and ready to download line art or by using the reference image that is associated with the final art. The exploration of symbolism, mood, color theory and mediums make up this unique portrait composition. We will use watercolor, colored pencils, and shimmery materials to make the back and moon glow as well as adding little stars to our little stargazer.




I just love celestial themed everything. This was a lot of fun. I am not and artist but I was able to pull off something pretty decent. That is saying a lot. Experience was creative and joyful.
