Making Space Art - Taran's Hobby

Making Space Art - Taran's Hobby

One of my very first paintings! All done with acrylic and brush. 'Dark Space'

In Late 2012 I discovered what is now my hobby of painting anything to do with the the universe and outer space, I started with a brush and did a few paintings which I liked but I always felt like there must be a better way of doing space art, one that meant I could make paintings look much more realistic!

I then discovered a way of making swirling clouds by using a lot of water with the acrylic, I was really pleased with the results and continued to make a few paintings like this:


Spray Paint!?

After wondering about new ways to paint, one of my friends showed me a video of a man in the street painting space art with spray paint, that was it! That was what I had been looking for!! I invested in a bunch of cans and did some research on the best methods on using them, and within hours of the cans arriving I had made my first piece of art with spray paint! It wasn't anything amazing, but it was my first attempt and it didn't turn out too horrible :P

One of the paintings done with a lot of water and diluted paint. 'Swirling Star'

Me happy after completing my first spray painted painting! 'Orange Spike'

After my first attempt, I started to get much better (in my opinion anyway) and I was doing at least 1 painting a week at one point!! I absolutely love working with spray paint as it allows for much more realistic cloud and star effects, the planets can also come out looking great!

Working on a piece, my friend bought it off me before I could finish it! 'Star Burst'

My Painting 'Frozen' looking great in the bedroom of the old couple who bought it :D
