Maelstrom by crazycolleeny Maelstrom by crazycolleeny
I have a bunch of galaxy ideas I want to paint (also some nebulae, but I'm less familiar with painting galaxies), and I wanted to try another saturated-color galaxy on a slightly larger scale.  This one is based mostly on the shape of Messier 106, but I had a little fun with the colors and changing the shapes up a bit.  I think I could have used a little more reds/pinks, but boy does this one feel like it glows, haha :D
15x30" oil painting

This painting will be available in my Etsy store for $160+shipping once it is dry.

Thanks a bunch; there are always scammers.  From their page, it looks like they're probably the kind of person who does this all the time, though I'm not sure what they could possibly hope to get out of it, especially since they're using a LOT of people's work and would be noticed by a lot of people...  Weird.

Messier 106 has a similar shape, and considering the size of the universe, I wouldn't be surprised if there is! Heart

Haha that's exactly what I was going for :D  I like the "normal" looking galaxies too, but I wanted to try some with some pretty bright colors and contrast to really make them pop!  And thank you very much :)

And it pops very well, particulary in the center.

I simply like the motive: a galaxy, very soothing!

I find that to be true of nebulae; galaxies are a bit tougher for me to paint at the moment and so are a little less soothing ;) 
Thank you very much; I truly appreciate the compliment :)

It's beautiful! (I originally thought the pink part was actually an abstract body, kind of stretched out.)
