Jupiter Blue

Would you buy a painting of one of the poles of Jupiter? I’ve done a few paintings os astronomical objects. This is from a photo from the Juno probe a few years ago. I’m thinking if doing a ainting of Pluto’s heart. But although I love it I wonder if anyone out there is actually interested. Maybe I’m too interested in tech. I can’t help it though.

It’s not easy to hand paint these images, it takes ages to blend the colours and build them up. Then you have to make sure it’s accurate, although I don’t measure everything exactly. I can’t compete with photography but I do try my best. Anyway this is a large acrylic on canvas and it is for sale.

Work in progress… Painting Jupiter is hard!

I’ve been doing some more work on this painting. I want to get it finished this week. It’s a painting of one of the poles of Jupiter. In the photo it has a bluish tinge but I’m trying to make it bluer as the exhibition title is “an Exhibition of Blue” on in Spode exhibition space at Acava Studios, Spode Site, Eleanor Street, Stoke, Stoke-on-Trent. From 2nd February 2019.

Jupiter tryptich finished

Swift photos of the paintings. Taken on the kitchen with a cat hovering and wanting to walk across the canvases. One is a bit overshadowed by the lighting in the kitchen but I wanted to show that they could be hung in various directions.

I showed them to someone and they wanted them! So they will not be available at the Orme group of artists exhibition on Saturday and Sunday but at least I can exhibit them so people can see what I can do…

My poor eyes! Lots of details …
