View A Painting In Progress

Guess what? I'm painting a galaxy, NGC 6503, on a staircase ceiling. I'll be posting .jpgs and videos of my progress, so stay tuned! We'll start with the texture I put on a black background, and a view of my working space.

Day One

The black background had already been painted on the ceiling.

Scaffolding is a board cut to fit on top of this 90-degree-angle ladder, both of whose ends are set on mats to protect the stair treads.

Water, brushes and acrylics are ready to go!

Some texture is put on the ceiling, which already had a rough surface.
