Galaxy Quest aka Shaded Circles

The lovely frandalicious56 commented in my last blog post that one of her obstacles was shading white circles. Well, these circles aren’t white, but I find them just as challenging! I had already been playing with my Zig Clean Brush markers and shading in my art journal and promised frandalicious56 I’d post it.

When I’d finished the shading I thought it looked somewhat like a galaxy of planets, so I colored grey in around the orbs and added white “stars.” I achieved the shading by using either a light and dark color in the same hue or one color blended until it faded out.

So you see, not all pages are works of art. Playing and trying this and that, it’s what we all do to discover new techniques and improve. I’d love to know what you’re playing with right now in your art journal! xo, seena
