Ever since I read Rise of the Rocket Girls by Nathalia Holt this image came into my head of a girl (and her cat) floating in space. A story soon followed. Since I've never attempted to paint space before I did this little piece as a tester to see how it would go.
Let me tell you, painting space is hard!
I'm going to do a couple more testers, try some different techniques - more salt, more pooling water-, before I delve into a full scale piece.
