Painting: Star gazing in the forest

Saw this image some time back and knew I just had to use it for painting practice. Took a screenshot on my phone and have been wanting to paint a version of my own.

Finally painted it today. It took layers of blue, black, and white acrylic paint to get the basic sky colors done. Used a fine brush to add dots to represent stars.

More dots later…

A few more dots and some trees…

Added trees and used pearlescent black, white, and blue to add accents to the image.

Added a few twinkly stars. Final painting!
