Zeta Ophiuchi (Zeta Oph)

This painting is inspired by the star, Zeta Ophiuchi (Zeta Oph) in infrared. Part of my nebula/star series. I was trying something different, which didn’t go quite as planned. I drew the ink sacred geometry before painting in black and soon realized it would be lost in the painting process. Luckily, I scanned the work in process before there was too much paint and I was able to isolate and digitally change the color of the middle part of the geometry to white so it could be seen better. Materials List: Paper: Bee Paper 100% Rag 140# Cold Press Watercolor; Paint: Daniel Smith Watercolor and Holbein Gouache; Brushes: Protege 512 Flat (3/4″), Princeton 8 round, Loew-Cornell 3 round; Pens: Ohto Graphic Liner 02 and Uniball Signo White Gel Pen; +minor level adjustments and digital editing to the sacred geometry symbol in Photoshop
