Horehead Nebula, Finished

I have declared this painting finished...and done in just about a week, too, I can hardly believe it. :) I sort of want to continue fiddling with it, but I believe it is time to move on (mostly it just bothers me how much of the linen texture I can see up close, since the paint layers are so very thin).

Horsehead Nebula...kinda lookin' like a nebula

This isn't entirely updated picture--I just took one when the sun happened to peek out for a few minutes, giving better ambient light for a photo. I think I'm close to being finished with this one, hopefully I'll be able to get another good photo of the finish.

Horsehead Nebula, First Color Layer

The photography on this is pretty bad, with glare and the right side is too saturated and the left side not quite saturated enough...just believe me when I say it has delightful subtle color and lots of blending! Very fun to work on still, I can tell the subsequent layers will be even better with all the cool space swirlies and such.
