  3. shess2000 says

    what are you doing with all these paintings ?

  4. Nick Leon says

    Hey Ryan, good luck with the youtube game, maybe a collab with a big youtuber is all you need.
    Youtube is missing a go-to Viral artist, one with actual talent.

    Wonderful tutorial… thank you so much for this. You got be started with the painting. Some questions though.

    1. I wasn't sure how much water to use. I used it only for the step where some white was to be sprayed for bringing out white stars. Colour used to dry pretty quickly otherwise. Was that because I didn't use water at all?

    2. Did you have pink or did you make it with blue and red?

    3. Do you use separate brushes for every colour or it is okay to get them all mixed? I used one predominantly for pink, and then blue, second for the white to make galaxy bright, third for spraying the white and forth for black.

  19. Seraphina Mathias says

    so paint the colors over the wet black paint?

  20. Seraphina Mathias says

    will this work on a much bigger canvas? 10×12?

  21. Sierra Hudson says

    This didn't work for me. I tried your technique three times. Am I not understanding something? Blacl canvas and then paint it with black and work with it while it's still wet? I found it incredibly difficult to blend and make decent values. The black paint dries too fast before I can blend. Can I use water with it to make it dry slower? I ruined one of my brushes for this and I am feeling rather discouraged.

  22. Karan gupta says

    which type of colours are u using?

  23. Amna Mateen says

    awesome paintings!! can we make these paintings on a big canvas?
