Amazing! How did you make the stars look so natural and glowy? I find whenever I do watercolours all the white parts turn into a huge mess, even if I use tape or masking fluid >.<

Have you ever tried Posca poster color markers?:D that's what I used to do the stars. They're water based so they mix with watercolors:) I first touched the marker on the surface of the wet watercolor painting to do the brightness of the stars, and then when the watercolor was fully dried I did it again. They're really great because they mark over any surface:) so I also use them sometimes to correct errors on my watercolor paintings.

Hmm, no, I haven't! Are these Posca markers worth purchasing? Ah, that's a really good idea, I'd love to try that out sometime - I love to include a nice starry sky in a great deal of my paintings. C: Thanks for the suggestion!

Yes:D definitely! Besides being a great complement to watercolor, and traditional art in general, they're cheap, something like $4-7 each depending on where you live. Since you want to do stars, I'd recommend you trying out the white one (PC-5M is the Posca type I used here, it's round-pointed). If you get along with it you could more effects with different colors:D
You're welcome:hug:

I feel this piece of work has a deeper meaning than just to look nice. Maybe it meaning is that we can create our own universe within our imaginations. I love how this image evokes different feelings. Very well done.

It actually has several meanings, as several thoughts for this passed by my head while painting this. So I think whatever meaning you see for it will be right, it is meant to be that way. Thank you.:D

Obrigada:love:

Eu fiz com caneta Posca branca (é uma caneta grande, arredondada e com corpo preto que usam em marcação industrial). Como ela é a base de água e a ponta é redonda, ela mistura com aquarela entao eu primeiro encostei a ponta da caneta pra espalhar a tinta enquanto a aquarela ainda estava molhada (isso pra fazer o efeito brilhante das estrelas maiores) e depois que a aquarela estava completamente seca, eu usei a caneta de novo nas estrelas que tinha feito antes e para estrelas menores, usei caneta gel branca.^^
[link] elas são legais porque marcam em cima de qualquer tipo de material.:D

De nada! =D

Ahhhh que legal, eu tenho umas, mas são as bem grandes com pontas achatadas.
Minha irmã comprou mas eu nunca usei ela pra nada na verdade xD
Fiz só alguns testes. Não sabia que eram a base d'agua e que davam pra misturar com aquarela.
Ai que legal, vou testar depois com alguns desenhos *O*
obrigada pela dica! *O*

Ah, sei quais são. Aquelas eu não comprei porque não iam ter utilidade, eu trabalho com branco em áreas pequenas.
Eu também não sabia, não diz isso nas informações da caneta, sempre pensei que fosse a base de álcool ou óleo. Aprendi no meu trabalho, na papelaria.:XD: aí eu pensei, "é exatamente isso que eu preciso".
De nada!:love: quero ver depois como ficou:aww:
