the universe took a long time to build – about 

Or, at least this one did.  

 I’ve been working on today’s painting for a long time. Months. I’d work on it, leave it for a few weeks, work some more, leave it, look at it, leave it…. And on, and on, and on. I think though that the gradual building of layers of watercolour really made it amazing.  

 There are so many layers here. I can only speculate as the the materials I used. Pretty sure I used my Derwent Inktenses, Faber-Castell, Staedtler, and new Caran d’Aches Watercolour pencils. I know there are gelatos on this as well as the new Tim Holtz Distress Crayons. I’m prettier sure there’s also the Neocolor II wax pastels as well. And that’s just the base layer! 

 For the pinks and greens I used Distress Sprays and Dylusions. And I think that’s it. Probably. Possibly.  

 Oh and the stars are Liquitex professional gesso. I knew I missed something.
