Red shift

Red shift

Red and blue shift of an imaginary spiral galaxy, fantasy image.

I built the dust rings with texture paste for days (it was a good experience), so that I could spray the two dominant colours, red and blue, from a flat angle. At the same time, I tried to achieve an effect that was pleasing to the eye in itself, because the original idea would only really work if the image itself was in motion or the position of the viewer changed – which can be achieved with the vertical suspension, but then it would look weird from the eye. 🙂

I have done a lot of small dioramas with this technique and it is very effective. I’ll keep experimenting with the larger ones. 🙂

30×60 cm stretched canvas, acrylic, structure paste, various techniques.

If you like the painting, you can buy it.
