The little sparkles in the sky are barely visible, I think the camera flash picked up the reflective value and accentuated the sparkle.
This paper is a bit difficult to paint on using some of the standard techniques of resist or scrubbing. Its beautiful paper with lots of character and very thick. Once its wet it becomes blotter paper and can tear if not treated with a bit of respect.
I used some iridescent paint on this one. This paint has a bit of a sparkle to it but usually it can be very discreet and only when light hits the paint a certain way does it reflect back.
This is an extreme close up as the actual painting is small. This painting is rather nice, I love the colors in the background, it looks ethereal.
This small gem has a watermark on the left side of the painting. It isn’t unusual for a water mark to show as it does in this painting, I’m only pointing this out so that no one is surprised.
This small painting would make a great gifs for your dog loving friends.
