Night sky watercolour

I was making @Bunny1kenobi a surprise in the Ongoing Wish Swap. When I looked on her Pinterest, I saw a variety of starry night sky pictures, and I thought I’d try out painting something along similar lines in watercolour.

It was a fun process, building up quite a few layers of paint, and then the risky step of splattering white gouache on it at the end! I was pleased with how it turned out, and Bunny1kenobi likes it too, yay!

This is so pretty! What kind of water color paper did you use? Was it already cut round or did you have to do that?
