STARLIGHT-Celestial Landscape Oil Painting of Night Sky with Planets, Stars, Clouds by Marina Petro

Artist~Marina Petro, Saratoga Springs, NY USA
Original celestial oil painting on archival Raymar canvas panel

The compositions for these celestial paintings can go on into infinity. It is one of the most natural subjects for me to paint and hones my intuition. It's interesting because I can be compulsively working with one color and then 'out of the blue' I'll get an impression like "use red now." My first respsonse is generally resistance but I usually go along with the impression and it always works out well.  As I am painting, I wonder whether I am actually painting a constellation that is 'out there' and I'm just tuning into it unconsciously. I suppose it doesn't matter, but I am curious.  Any astronomers out there???
