StarGazer – my first ever watercolor galaxy painting with a bonus

Hello Kraafters!

Welcome back to the blog – for both of us! It has been, as they say, A HOT MINUTE since I have been here…but that is all about to change my friends. I am here, I am typing and I am so excited to share.

For your viewing pleasure we have close up pictures, a supply list and a few videos to watch! I painted a galaxy! I have never done it before. I have watched about a thousand or so videos of many artists creating many different styles of these but I never really tried to create my own.

That all changed when my nephew came to visit the other day. He loves doing art when he comes to my place. It’s a given that when he comes to visit I am to get out the supplies he requests and watch him go. This time when I asked him what he was going to paint it actually inspired me to try something too.

He said, “I am going to paint the solar system/universe!”

Well, I just might try out one of those galaxy paintings today myself. And so we went to it. I had brand new supplies I was REALLY wanting to use but it wasn’t super successful…AT FIRST. You will have to watch the whole video to see what all took place specifically, I think you will enjoy it.

I posted a few pictures on my Instagram page, the Kraafters Kommunity 2.0 and then I posted a speed through video too. People seemed to enjoy it so I figured a full version was warranted.

About Heather Kraafter

First and foremost, I am a child of the One True King! I am blessed to be married to my best friend and was privileged to stay home and raise my boys. I began the Kraaft Shaak in 2010 as a way to experiment with crafting mediums and to teach others what I have learned and have come to enjoy it as my creative passion. Taking the 'show on the road' is my latest passion and each day is one step closer to that dream. Thanks for being a part of that journey too!
