New Original Gouache Painting – “The Stars We’ll Be”

I’ve been sitting on this painting for a while, letting it rest before I decide if it is really done.

I wanted to paint a sister painting to “The Stars We Are”, with the colors essentially flipped.

It was really fun mixing up all the different orange colors. I don’t have orange paint, so I mixed several shades with the two or three different red and yellow paints I have.

As usual, I used wax paper to create random patterns in the wet paint.
