Here is my first maquette for my idea for a dark world and a galaxy inspired sky. I started with a simple cityscape of London. I blacked it out and cut out only some windows/openings that can be found in reality.
Next I painted the abstract galaxy inspired painting behind using acrylic paint. I tried to create a 3 dimensional aspect on the piece by making it in layers. I wanted to make the city stand out in some sort of way. I was thinking it would be nice if I could light up the sky and have the light flood through the windows of the cityscape. So I also took some photos of my work with LED’s in between the two layers. Here are the results.
